The mission of Pleasant Meadow Creamery is to glorify and honor the God of the bible by being faithful and diligent stewards of His resources in order to produce amazing dairy products for our local community including three counties – Bonner, Kootenai, and Boundary. We will continually strive to produce great milk, great cows, healthy organic fields, and well-paying rewarding work for body, soul, and spirit.
Idaho Guernsey Raw Milk Dairy
Pleasant Meadow Creamery is an Idaho Guernsey raw milk dairy committed to providing you with wholesome 100% grass-fed, non-GMO based raw Guernsey A2A2 cow milk as God intended milk to be.
In 2019, we will also introduce a vat-pasteurized option for our products available both in Idaho and Washington. We are doing this because we believe people in Spokane should have access to glass-bottled, grass-fed, Guernsey Goodness!
What the cows eat
For Guernsey cows to produce the most wholesome, healthy, and great-tasting milk, their diet is very important.
For six months of the year, the cows are out on irrigated pasture, eating fresh grass and clover
When conditions are not ideal to be outside, the girls eat mixed grass hay and haylage and sleep in a planer shavings-bedded pack bedding barn.
During milking, we feed the girls certified organic grain. It contains lentils, peas, barley and wheat from Eastern Montana. We also feed OMRI listed free choice salt from Redmond Agriculture.
This helps the girls keep up with their energy and protein needs while producing high cream, high quality Guernsey goodness.
We do not feed corn or soy.
How we care for the farm
The farm has a creek running through it and a high-output well that are used to keep the pastures green throughout the summer.
All manure on the farm is spread on the pastures and hay fields, and we use chickens, ducks, and wild turkeys to sanitize the pastures after the cows graze them.

We are a local dairy – selling milk directly off the farm in Sagle, and at retail stores and drop points in Sandpoint, Athol, Rathdrum, Post Falls, and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
