“YOU’D HAVE TO OWN A COW TO GET FRESHER MILK”
Stew Leonard’s milk is delivered fresh daily, straight from award-winning dairy farms in upstate New York and Connecticut. Our outstanding dairy farmers have been recognized with Dairy of Distinction awards for keeping well-maintained farms and producing high quality milk from cows that are fed an all-natural diet of corn, hay and grains. Our milk is delicious — and so are Stew Leonard’s eggs, award-winning butter, mozzarella and other favorites. Try them all!
In 1904, a Swiss immigrant named John S. Wuethrich became the general manager of a creamery in Greenwood, Wisconsin, where he made butter using cream from the neighboring farms. Today, that creamery is Grassland Dairy, a fifth-generation family-owned business that's been supplying butter to Stew Leonard's since the 1980s.
Grassland buys their milk from about 500 local family-owned farms which gives their butter a pure, delicious taste that comes from cows raised on all-natural diets in the prairies of Wisconsin.
After more than 60 years on the job, John S. Wuethrich's grandson, Dallas, retired from the company this past year. But true to the Wuethrich family commitment to quality butter produced at the highest standard, Dallas is still in the plant before sunrise each day before meeting his own two sons and grandsons upstairs in the office for a cup of coffee.
