Through our mobile, drive-thru farm store, The Farm Truck, we aim to provide a narrow but hearty selection of high quality, locally grown and produced foods in a convenient way.

Since we launched The Farm Truck in October of 2022, we have thus far been able to provide:

  • Pastured Meats
  • Pastured Eggs
  • Chemical-Free Produce
  • Sourdough Bread
  • Locally Made Pasta

And beginning this week we are so excited to add to our offerings a few high quality, local dairy products!

Here are the details on our new dairy products:

1.100% Grass-Fed Organic Whole Milk

Sourced from Shenandoah Valley Family Farms in cooperation with Mountain Branch Creamery in Dayton, VA, this fresh, creamy, whole milk is:

  • 100% Grass-Fed
  • Certified Organic
  • Verified A2A2
  • Non-Homogenized (the cream separates to the top!)
  • Low Temperature Pasteurized

2.100% Grass-Fed Organic Raw Cheese

Sourced from Shenandoah Valley Family Farms in cooperation with Mountain Branch Creamery in Dayton, VA, this cheese is:

  • 100% Grass-Fed
  • Certified Organic
  • Verified A2A2
  • Made with raw milk
  • Aged 60 days or more

3.Local Butter

Sourced from Mount Crawford Creamery in Mount Crawford, VA, this butter is:

  • Low temperature pasteurized
  • Made with straight cream - no additives
  • Available salted or unsalted

Offering dairy products was part of the original idea for The Farm Truck, and the decision was recently solidified by a social media poll that asked our followers what they wanted to see next at our mobile farm store. Local dairy won by landslide!

What came in second place?

The second most desired product according to this poll was prepared foods like frozen soups and broths, frozen shredded chicken and taco meat, etc. - all made with locally sourced ingredients. We are pleased to say that we are currently working on this next tier and hope to have these products available by this Spring/Summer!

Are these dairy products also available through our other pick up locations?

Absolutely! All of these new dairy products are available through our regular farm order deliveries as well as for on-farm pickup.

As for The Farm Truck, you can add dairy to your pre-order through our online store , or just pull on up when we are setup at a location and purchase on-site.

And thank you for your continued support of Food that Restores and Local Food. Conveniently!

Vitamin D in Pastured Pork

If our pigs are constantly exposed to sunlight in every season from day 1 until the end of their life, think about how much Vitamin D they are absorbing through their skin! And all that Vitamin D is getting stored where? In their fat. So, when we eat pork from pastured pigs, especially their fat, we are consuming that ever-important fat soluble Vitamin D.
