South Mountain Creamery is Maryland's only on-the-farm processing plant. They grow the crops, milk the cows, process the milk, and then deliver it to homes across DC, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. In addition to fresh creamy milk, they also can deliver cheese, yogurt, eggs, meat, honey, bread, and more. While not certified organic, the farm follows traditional common sense farming methods and many of the same practices as organic farmers, such as no growth hormones and no pesticides on the fields.
Families can visit the farm store on site as well as watch the cows get milked (daily, 1:30pm-5:30pm) in the milking parlour and help bottle feed the calves (daily, 4pm).
