  • I have been purchasing your whole milk at Snow's Produce in Holder, Citrus County Florida. Your milk is delicious and stay fresh longer than store milk. I don't mind paying a little more for a good product. I am also trying to do my part on buying local. Thank you for your commitment to the community.
  • Great learning experience. Professional, friendly staff providing insight into day to day operations. The festival is great my kids love it.
  • They genuinely care about people and animals there, it's a rare quality. Hope to return again as often as possible!
  • Great local milk products and amazing kitchen food
  • It was a fun afternoon checking out the farm!
