Rolling Farms "Family Day" On The Farm
Join us as we visit Marcoot Jersey & Rolling Farms Creamery.
Do you know how milk get from cattle to your kitchen table?
Ever wondered how cheese is made from start to finish?
This unbelievable tour will takes us to these local farms and allow us to learn IN PERSON how the every essential ingredients we use become the way the are.
Every day and night for over 100 years our family has raised, cared for, and milked our cows. We wake up and start milking at 3:30 A.M. to have milk ready to send to our processing plant by 7:30 A.M.
Once the milk arrives at the plant, we cold separate the cream from the milk. After the cream is separated, we then create our different products such as: heavy cream, half & half, whole milk, 2% milk, and skim milk.
We know how important product consistency is to you. In our last step before we bottle, we homogenize the milk. This process uses pressure to break down fat particles in milk. When finished, the milkfat is evenly distributed throughout the milk creating a uniform product.
MARCOOT JERSEY CREAMERY

Our family is passionate about the quality of our farm, our milk, and our products, and we are pleased to share that passion with you and your family. We handcraft only the highest-quality artisan and farmstead cheeses, and many other products like our fruit & whey ices, primarily grass-fed beef, clover honey, and more.
