Providing Marketing Services
For Local Dairy Farmers
Piedmont Milk Sales provides marketing services for dairy farmers.
Many of the farms that have chosen to allow Piedmont Milk Sales to provide marketing services have been operated by the same family for several generations. Our goal is to provide a high level of service to the family farms that we serve which will allow them to efficiently market the milk produced on their farms directly to local milk processing plants thereby maintaining the freshness and quality of the milk produced on the farm.
We believe that family farms are vital to our country’s ability to maintain an adequate and nutritious food supply. Family farms are also very important to the economies of local communities where they are located.
Piedmont Milk Sales believes that dairy cows are amazing animals that should be treated humanely and with respect. Dairy farmers know that success on a dairy farm begins with the health and welfare of their dairy animals.
We are committed to working with the dairy farmers we serve to ensure that they provide for the welfare of their animals and we constantly provide assistance to strive for continuous improvement in all areas of animal welfare.
All dairy farms who market their milk through Piedmont Milk Sales are part of the National Dairy FARM Program.
FARM, (Farmers Assuring Responsible Management), is a nationwide program that reflects the commitment of U.S. dairy farmers to providing a high level of animal care. FARM ensures dairy farmers use the latest scientific research to take great care of their animals and uses second and third party verification so consumers know their dairy products come from well cared for animals.
All of the dairy farms that receive marketing services from Piedmont Milk Sales pledge not to use artificial hormones (rBGH/rBST).
All tanker loads of milk are tested for antibiotics prior to unloading at a processing plant.
Numerous quality tests are routinely performed on milk from each dairy farm by certified labs to ensure that processors and consumers are receiving the highest quality milk possible.
