Golden Glen Creamery

Golden Glen Creamery makes the switch away from their delicious glass-bottled milk and cream to focus exclusively on their delicious cheese and butters.

From their letter:

"We would first like to thank you for your commitment to buying and selling our products over the last several years.  We have enjoyed delivering to your stores and working with your staff."

"We had hoped to continue delivering glass-bottled cream topped milk for many years to come; however after carefully examining the cost of production and distribution, we have found that it is impossible to continue while maintaining a reasonable price structure."

"We would like to take this opportunity to recommend two farms whose philosophies and product quality is comparable to ours: Straus Family Creamery out of California (for glass-bottled milk), and Fresh Breeze Organic Dairy out of Lynden, WA (for organic, small family farm milk in plastic jugs)."

"Golden Glen Creamery will continue to focus upon our lines of cheeses and butters that we will be expanding upon in the very near future."

We wish them the best in their future endeavors, and are looking forward to exploring their new offerings.

From their Facebook page :

"Please return all of your glass bottles to your place of purchase for full credit by January 15th. We will not be accepting them after that point, and apologize for any inconvenience."
