Hudson Valley Freshlast updated: April 2014

We are a Dairy Farmer Partnership dedicated to preserving the agricultural heritage of the Hudson River Valley and promoting it as one of the premier food regions of the United States. We produce premium quality dairy products– whole, skim, low-fat and chocolate milk along with half & half, heavy cream, yogurt, ice cream mix and sour cream.

We produce premium quality dairy products – whole, skim, low-fat and chocolate milk along with half and half, heavy cream, yogurt, and sour cream.

We are sustainable agriculture – it our mission to secure living wages for our farmers and their families. By ensuring a fair price for our farmers’ goods, we keep those farmers in business, which means preventing the loss of their land to development. Our Hudson Valley Fresh farms are currently preserving 8,000 acres of open land. Now that’s sustainable agriculture!

We are locally produced – all of our milk is produced on Hudson Valley Fresh farms located in Dutchess, Columbia and Ulster Counties in New York State. All farms are within 20 miles of each other.

We are locally processed - we process all of our milk at Boice Brothers Dairy in Kingston, New York. Our milk is the only milk they process and we never co-mingle our milk with milk from any other farm. That ensures taste and quality. We guarantee that Hudson Valley Fresh milk is from Hudson Valley Fresh farms. What other dairy can say that?

We are locally sold - we sell our milk in the Mid-Hudson Valley, Long Island, New York City, New Jersey and Connecticut. We offer our valued customers high quality food choices with a low carbon footprint.

We are award-winning - our farms have won awards for the quality of their products like the National Dairy Quality Award and NYS Environmental Stewardship Award.

We meet the strictest standards of Kosher law and are certified kosher by KOF-K Kosher Supervision, one of the foremost Kosher certification agencies in the United States.
