Maple Hill Creamery

Kinderhook, NY

Today, Maple Hill has over 150 small family farms from which they source their milk. But back at the very beginning, there was only one family and one farm—Stone Creek Farm—a 250 acre dairy farm that Tim and Laura Joseph purchased in 2003. Tim and Laura had no farming experience — they had never milked a cow — but received a fast education when sixty-four cows stepped off the trailers in 2004. The Josephs began as conventional dairy farmers, but quickly became enamored with organic practices. As America’s original 100% grass-fed organic dairy, Maple Hill’s mission is to bring healthy, organic, 100% grass-fed dairy products to families all over the United States. As a result, healthy soil is the cornerstone of literally everything they do. Maple Hill works tirelessly within their network of organic 100% grass-fed farmers to develop and implement practices that result in the regeneration of the land through the management of organic grass-fed cows.
