Frequently Asked Questions


Can we tour the farm?

We are a working farm! We work everyday sun up to sun down and still have plenty to do.  We wish we could give everyone a farm day experience but our animals need us.  Thank you for understanding a farmers way of life!  We do hope to have a special event one day to welcome everybody to the farm.  If we do, we will post about it on Facebook.

 

Is there a farm store?

No, we do not have a farm store. We deliver milk to Knoxville every Tuesday and Friday. We deliver to Maryville every Friday. We deliver to Norris and Corryton every Wednesday.

 

Why does the milk separate?

It is completely natural for milk to separate. Since we don't homogenize, the cream rises to the top. Just shake it up! 

Is the milk organic?

No, milk can only be organic through a certification process. Our milk is natural and we practice organic farming by not using pesticides and herbicides on our pastures. Also, we never use hormones. We try to produce the highest quality milk by not changing it's natural state so we do not homogenize.

 

Is the ice cream gluten free?

Our ice cream base is gluten free and most of our ice creams are too!  There are a few that have gluten: cookies n cream, birthday cake, cookie dough.. just double check the ingredients label.

 

Are you hiring?

We ask.. can you milk cows?  Dairy farmers are always in need of folks with experience milking cows.  Dairy farmers rarely get vacations so if you have experience milking cows and want a part time job, please email cruzefarm@gmail.com.  Better yet, come on over now with your boots on! ;)
