Dairy Products

At Kilgus Farmstead, we exclusively bottle milk from Jersey dairy cows raised with our own home-grown crops. With our herd and on-farm bottling plant situated on the same property, we maintain maximum control over the entire process, guaranteeing our customers the safest, freshest, and highest-quality milk year-round.

Here are the products and flavors we’re excited to be offering you:

Deerland Dairy Buttermilk is rich, creamy, and full of flavor. Perfect for making classic buttermilk pancakes or buttermilk ranch dressing.

Deerland Dairy Sour Cream is rich, thick, flavorful, and smooth with just the right amount of tanginess. The sour cream is “cup-set” using CO2 to create a “puffed up” foil. The CO2 is a natural preservative and gives the sour cream a great shelf life. All-Jersey, all natural!

Deerland Dairy Yogurt is a traditional American-style yogurt, sweet and deliciously creamy. With cream on the top, it contains no preservatives. Available in plain, vanilla, strawberry, and blueberry
