Jupiter Creamery

The Jupiter Creamery is a family run dairy farm in Jupiter Farms, Florida.

First of all, who can resist the face of an adorable dairy cow? Not me! Secondly, this hard working family makes it easy for the public to get milk, locally. Read the blog to learn more about their awesome adventure and make sure to save the date for one of their Cow Washes!

Tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Suzie, I live in Jupiter Farms with my everlastingly patient and supportive husband, Rodney. We have two children, a brutally honest four year old girl and a naked outdoor enthusiast two year old son. I grew up in Pennsylvania. My Grandfather John Bartram was a long time family Orchard grower. But due to a heart attack and having five daughters and no sons the family farm had to be sold to developers, and was just a suburb when I grew up. My husband and I moved from Australia, where he grew up, to Jupiter farms in 2003. But we did not start farming until 2008.

When and why did you start the Jupiter Creamery?

We started first with chickens, ducks and turkeys, moved up to pigs and then beef cows. It was not until I was pregnant with our daughter did I think about how much milk we drink. I knew I was going to need a milk cow or two! So I asked a farmer friend of mine on how to get a quality animal. Good advice was to buy an older cow and she will teach me how to milk. True to form, my old gal cow did break me in as easily as she could. At first I was overwhelmed but every day it got easier. But what do you do with four gallons a milk a day? So that led to again leaning on my friend to tell me how to legally sell raw milk in Florida and how to join organizations like the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund. So shortly after Jupiter Creamery was formed.

For those unfamiliar with the RAW lifestyle, what are the benefits of raw milk?

Legally hard to answer this one because under Florida law raw milk is not for human consumption. Most of my research was with the Weston A. Price Foundation and the Campaign for Real Milk.

Who makes up the Jupiter Creamery crew?

Right now I milk three cows every morning. The calves get the rest of the milk, straight from their mothers during the day. I have a few friends that have helped so we can go on holiday every once and a while. And of course my friends that took over milking while I gave birth to our son are amazing and I can not thank them enough!

What do you find most challenging about running your own business?

I never approached Jupiter Creamery as a for profit business, its definitely an avocation. Right now I use the sales from milk to pay for the supplemental feed of our animals and maintenance of our fences and irrigation. Having a grass fed dairy I am also focusing on improving our pasture, and also maximizing productivity utilizing intensive rotational grazing. We do not use any chemical fertilizers or herbicides on any of our pasture.

What is the most rewarding thing about running your company?

Right now the most rewarding part of having cows is to watch my children interact with them, feeding a calf a bottle or getting a rough cow tongue “kiss” after a brush or a hand feed.

What do you do on your days off?

Days off are spent at the beach or playing soccer. Hanging out with friends and their kids.

How do you juggle work & family?

I could not do what I am doing without the support of my husband. He makes breakfast and entertains kids while I milk, he maintains all the equipment and is always there to help. When I need to change or improve pastures or milking procedures.

Where can we find The Jupiter Creamery online?

I have a Facebook page Jupiter Creamery. I try to put photos and what milk products I have available on the Facebook page. Also upcoming events to wash or feed the cows. Save The Date | November 5th | Pumpkin Feeding: Open Farm! Come and feed the cows and pigs your Halloween pumpkins. Swing by all day with any hay or pumpkins to pet and hand feed the cows.

Thank you for sharing your story and your images, Suzie!
