Cruze Farm..A Farm Forever
Cruze Farm is a family dairy farm in Knoxville, Tennessee. We milk Jersey cows and bottle our own whole pasteurized Jersey milk. We also pasteurize and bottle real churned buttermilk, light milk and chocolate milk. Our cows are on pasture 365 days a year and are never given hormones. Our milk is not homogenized so the cream rises to the top. You will find our milk in many local markets, mom-and-pop grocery stores, and food cooperatives throughout East Tennessee. Our dairy is a state approved and inspected milk processing plant. Several years ago we placed a conservation easement on our farm and hope that it will now be "a farm forever."
Cruze Farm at asbury
Cruze Farm at Asbury is our new permanent year round ice cream and coffee shop! We are open daily at 2721 Asbury Road Knoxville. This location is so special to us because it brings our dairy journey full circle. Asbury is the community where the Burkharts and Cruzes met, married, and dairy-ed until 1973 when Knox County purchased many of the dairy farms located in the Forks of the River for the industrial park. Grandpa Glenn Cruze relocated to Riverdale and continued dairy farming. His son, Earl Cruze built a processing plant and began bottling milk in 1980. 40 years later, we are back in the Asbury community, reviving the wonderful memories and spreading joy with fresh churned ice cream! Come see us!
