Our Story

From 1890

From the fields of Holland and pastures of Luxembourg to the heart of Texas, we can trace our dairy heritage all the way back to 1890. You could say we have been doing this a long time! We hope to share the passion and love for our cows with you and your family through our delicious products.

Making Texas Our Home

Our founders, Frank and Annette Volleman started dairying on the family farm in Luxembourg, a small country in Europe. In 1993, after reading about the opportunities in Texas they decided to pack up their small family and make the journey to America. Over 25 years later they are living the American Dream and are still providing fresh milk to Texan families.

Our Family 

Today, Volleman’s Family Farm consists of Frank and Annette alongside their four boys. The oldest, Benjamin, manages the farm and grows the feed for our cows, David and his wife Anna manage the dairy and work hard to keep our cows healthy, Andrew and his wife Shelby run the creamery, and Daniel watches over the baby calves to make sure they can grow big and strong. We hope to leave a legacy for the future generations and love watching our kids get to experience the passion we have for the dairy industry.

Environmental and Sustainable

The planet isn’t going to save itself, which is why we are trying to do our part to reduce plastic waste by providing you with returnable glass bottles. We also continue to improve farming practices to reduce the amount of erosion and runoff, decrease our water usage, and to replenish the nutrients in the soil. We promise saving the planet never tasted so good!

Only the Highest Quality Milk

Everything is better in Texas and we believe the same goes for our products. That delicious milk sitting on your table goes through tough quality control procedures before it can even leave our farm. We work hard every day to ensure that our milk has no added hormones and is antibiotic free. So go ahead, grab a glass of our milk and try some for yourself.

Proud Local Texans

Our farm boasts its Texas pride. We know how much it means to be Texan and the love Texans have for this wonderful state and the people in it. That’s why our farm, on the outskirts of the Texas Hill Country, prides itself in providing the freshest products to your local grocery stores.

Animal Welfare

Our cows spend their day lounging in the shade, cooling off under sprinklers, and eating from an all-you-can-eat buffet, all formulated by a nutritionist to ensure our cows are at their best health.  Our love for our cows is the first step to providing the highest quality milk.

Traceability

Growing the highest quality feed for our cows right here in Texas means we are able to trace back all the forages that go into making the milk that ends up on your table. Through sustainable farming practices we are able to ensure our cows get the nutrients they need in order to provide a high quality product for your family to enjoy.
