From our grass  TO YOUR GLASS

From Our Grass…

Nestled in the bend of the South Fork River sits our little slice of heaven. Our family farm is owned by Corey and Bridgette Lutz and family. Corey and Bridgette both grew up on dairy farms, so it was in their blood from an early age! In 1997, they started their own farm, Piedmont Jerseys. Everyone thought the couple was crazy for starting a grazing dairy, but Corey wanted to nourish the land to feed and house his cows. It gave them room to roam and helped the cows to live longer. To this day, the oldest cow on the farm is 13 years old! 

To Your Glass

As Corey and Bridgette’s children grew, their love for the cows and land grew too. Being a small farm, our family knew that if we wanted to keep the cows and continue farming we’d have to make a change. In 2012, our family began planning to build an on-farm store and creamery. We wanted to provide our community with authentic Jersey milk, a taste you can believe in. By offering our milk directly to the public, we are sure we’re providing wholesome, safe and local dairy products. In 2019, we broke ground on our new adventure, Riverbend Creamery. Our milk is bottled right on the farm to offer the freshest milk you can get!
