The dairy farm has been in operation in Caroline County since 1989 when Bob's parents, Robert R. Miller and Chase Tanner relocated their dairy cows from New Jersey. For 20 years, the herd has been pastured on 118 acres.

These cows, Holsteins and Holstein crosses, produce high quality, all natural milk for the Creamery's yogurt and Cream-line milk products produced on site.

Environmental Justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies. EPA has this goal for all communities and persons across this Nation.
