About North Country Creamery
North Country Creamery is a “100% grass-fed, Non-GMO, and Animal Welfare Approved dairy in Keeseville, NY. We are 20 minutes south of Plattsburgh, a ferry ride across Lake Champlain from Burlington, VT, and just over an hour from both the high peaks region of the Adirondacks and Montreal. We produce and sell an array of farmstead cheeses, creamline yogurts, and RAW milk! All of our products are made exclusively with the fresh milk from our Milking Shorthorn and Jersey cows, and other ingredients are limited to cultures, local herbs, maple syrup, and organic extracts–no added colors or stabilizers. Our cows receive the utmost care through the use of tinctures, essential oils, and homeopathic remedies, if ever they are in need.”
