Craigs Creamery Cheese Offered at Empire’s Dairy Profit Seminars

 

Craigs Creamery will be offering samples of its delicious new cheese varieties at the Dairy Profit Seminars at Empire Farm Days to be held Aug. 6, 7 and 8 at Seneca Falls, N.Y. Craigs Creamery is a new brand founded by eight family-run dairy farms in upstate New York in partnership with Dairy Farmers of America cooperative. Craigs Creamery cheese is made with local, high quality milk with no added hormones and all-natural ingredients.

In addition, the brand is committed to progressive, sustainable agriculture: the creamery is in Pavilion, N.Y., just a few miles from the farms and is powered by renewable energy from an on-site bio-digester. Craigs Creamery cheese is available in Mild/Medium/Sharp Cheddar, Muenster, Whole Milk Mozzarella, and Swiss.

The Dairy Profit Seminars at Empire Farm Days have offered educational programming for dairy producers and dairy industry personnel for more than 20 years in partnership with Cornell’s PRO-DAIRY and more recently with the Northeast Dairy Producers Association (NEDPA)  sponsorship from leading commercial firms.

An updated format this year features more but shorter speaker presentations on Aug. 6 and 7 along with food and refreshments, including single serve milk from Upstate Niagara Cooperative.  On Thurs., Aug. 8, the Junior Dairy Leadership program will host its student graduation ceremonies with family and friends.

Sponsors this year are Ag Modeling & Training Systems, ASAP Interiors, DFA Northeast, Farm Credit East, Farm Family Insurance and Pikeside Enterprises.
