Lochmead Dairy, generous sponsor of WFFC!
Lochmead Dairy is a longtime supporter of WFFC’s Farm to School Program. A fourth generation family owned business, Lochmead’s milk comes from their single-source herd of 600 Holsteins born and raised on their farm without growth hormones or excessive antibiotics. They grow 80% of what their herd eats, and all of their milk is sold within a 40 mile radius of the farm. The dairy has a methane digester that generates enough electricity for 200 homes.
