Fruitful Seasons Dairy is a family operated small dairy located near Alexandria, Minnesota. Our raw milk cheese is crafted on the farm in a licensed facility using quality milk from 100% grass-fed Jersey cows. We enjoy providing a good wholesome product to a local market.
How does it work? Our dairy is seasonal. Our cows calve between April and June. We pasture them spring through fall moving them to a fresh strip of grass 2-3 times each day. We make cheese 2 times a week. The left-over whey is fed to pigs, chickens and cows. When pasture season is over, most of the cows are dried up for the winter and we stop making cheese until the next spring. This gives the cows and us a nice break.
