Happy Cows

Happy Cows Make The Best
Milk—Naturally!

Our Cows Get the Care & Respect They Deserve

At Rockview, we take great care of our cows for two reasons. First, happy, healthy cows make the best tasting milk. And second, we believe watching out for the welfare of animals is our responsibility—it’s just the right thing to do! This is one of the reasons we’ve always owned our cows and our farms. The care and treatment we give our cows makes Rockview Farms® the brand your family will love for its taste and freshness, and the brand you can feel good about giving them.

Our Cows Grow Up Naturally, In Fresh Air & Sunshine

Rockview cows have plenty of room to roam in the fresh air and bask in the sunshine. They always have lots of clean water to drink, and they’re fed a nutritious diet of fresh alfalfa hay and grains. And Rockview cows have never been given artificial growth hormones*—not once in over 50 years.

We Care for the Earth, Its
Animals, & Our Community

On both our organic and traditional farms, our livestock and farm management standards are based on a family belief that it’s our responsibility to be good stewards of the land and the living things inhabiting it.

This is why our Animal Welfare Policy is supported by two main beliefs:

  1. We believe it is best to raise our own cows on our family farms. In so doing, we’re able to know and grow our herds throughout the generations, ensuring they’re treated humanely and with respect.
  2. We believe it is critical to maintain and constantly evaluate our annual farming plans, which are designed to protect Earth’s natural resources through sustainable farming practices.
Our No-GMO
Commitment

Did you know? We’re committed to keeping all Rockview milk, sour cream, buttermilk, cream, and half & half free from genetically modified organisms.
