The Scoop on The Farmer’s Cow: The Connecticut Connection
How The Farmer’s Cow is Bringing Connecticut Consumers Closer to Their Food
At Stanpac, we love sharing news about our clients and partners with you. This month, we’re spotlighting The Farmer’s Cow, based in Connecticut.
Stanpac provides the glass milk bottles and ice cream packaging used for some of the products at The Farmer’s Cow. We are proud to work with a company that promotes local dairy farms in Connecticut and helps consumers get connected to their local food.
The Farmer’s Cow is doing a lot of cool things to stand out from the crowd. Read all about their teamwork, unique milk bar, and new, limited edition maple milk!
It’s A Team Effort
The Farmer’s Cow is actually a group of 6 Connecticut dairy farms who decided to join together and promote local dairy farming in the state. Together, they are dedicated to “putting a face on Connecticut agriculture.”
Each of these farms is run by a family who has been in the business for many generations. Since 2005, they have been working together to ensure a bright future for their families and consumers alike.
Here are the 6 Connecticut dairy farms that make up the Farmer’s Cow:
- Fairvue Farms: Woodstock
- Cushman Farm: Franklin
- Fort Hill Farms: Thompson
- Graywall Farms: Lebanon
- Hytone Farm: Coventry
- Mapleleaf Farm: Hebron
Together, these farmers work to help connect the local community and the farmers that produce their food. They enjoy serving their products to customers and making the connection that sometimes gets lost with grocery shopping.
The Farmer’s Cow Calfe & Creamery
Each farm produces and sells products on their own land, but they have a communal headquarters in Mansfield called The Farmer’s Cow Calfe & Creamery.
Here, you can sample ice cream flavors, treat yourself to a delicious lunch, or take advantage of the unique milk bar. There is also a general store where customers can purchase products from all of the farms. These products include milk, ice cream, eggs, cider, and juice.
It’s open from 7am to 9pm daily, with different hours in the summertime. Be sure to stop by for breakfast, lunch, or just a delicious snack.
Connecting Connecticut Residents to Local Food
The farmers at The Farmer’s Cow banded together for a common cause: to connect Connecticut residents to fresh, local food that would benefit the community.
In addition, they want to add a friendly face to the people who serve the food. This way, customers could see that the food comes from a good, friendly family instead of a far-off corporation.
Each family farm realized that customers wanted to know where they could buy fresh milk that their local farms produced. Their goal is to connect consumers to those local foods and to show people where it comes from.
When you purchase The Farmer’s Cow products, you’re supporting your local community. You’re also purchasing products that were raised naturally and humanely. As a result, you’re supporting families who care for their cows and land.
The Farmer’s Cow Debuts New Maple Milk
The Farmer’s Cow has officially debuted its first ever seasonal flavor: maple milk.
This comes as part of a brand new line of Naturally New England flavored milk. The line will produce flavored milk inspired by the natural seasons New England offers. Maple milk is the first.
Maple sugar season inspired this first new flavor, and so it’s infused with sweet Vermont maple syrup. This syrup blends perfectly with fresh whole milk.
The only added sugar in the maple milk is the maple syrup itself. No artificial flavors, no corn syrup, and no additional added sugars are involved in the process.
Along with the maple milk, The Farmer’s Cow has also produced a line of maple cream flavored coffee.
The maple milk and coffee are available for a limited time. You can purchase them from February to the end of March and you can also find them at select local food stores in Connecticut.
Glass Milk Bottles Help The Farmer’s Cow Stand Out
The design for The Farmer’s Cow’s new maple milk helps the brand stand out on the dairy shelves. It’s packed in a signature, collectible 32-ounce glass bottle that looks great on any table.
Stanpac is proud to provide the Farmer’s Cow with the glass milk bottles used for their milk products, as well as ice cream containers for the general store.
It’s important to us to make sure that our clients stand out and that they showcase their brands in the most exciting way. By providing a collectible, beautiful bottle for The Farmer’s Cow, we believe they stand out both in the grocery store and at home.
