A Little History About Kleinpeter Farms Dairy
Kleinpeter Farms Dairy, L.L.C. has been a family-owned and independently operated dairy since 1913, providing fresh-tasting, quality Kleinpeter milk products to Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas for over ninety years. The Kleinpeters have been farming and processing milk longer than anyone in Louisiana, and are currently in their fourth generation of ownership, and the fifth generation is now working at the dairy. We have a strong commitment to buying locally, and appreciate our customers who support us by buying local as well. (What's a 'locavore'?)
We are committed to the highest standards of dairy processing for our product line of Kleinpeter milk and Kleinpeter milk products, and the kindest treatment of the cows which make up our herd. We're proud to be the first dairy farm in Louisiana to receive certification by the American Humane Association. In addition, we have received a perfect score for the way we treat our cows in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, the first farm ever to do so. Since then we have also achieved perfect scores in 2014 and 2015.
Our promise to you, the consumer, is that our milk comes from cows not treated with rBGH, (recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone).
Our 1500 acre farm in Montpelier has received awards given for developing a model of cooperation between the business of agriculture and conservation of the environment. Our farm not only provides environmentally sensitive housing for the herd of over 600 cows, but also produces much of the forage that feeds the cows. The Kleinpeter herd consists of Holsteins, Guernseys, and Jersey cows, creating the distinctive taste that Kleinpeter milk is known for.
