About this project

Snowville Creamery is a small scale fluid milk processing plant located on a pasture based dairy farm in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Meigs County. Our company processes and bottles milk and cream from local farmers who use sustainable farming practices. The main sources of our milk are the Dix/Hall farm (where we are located) and Hamm Valley farm in Racine, Ohio.

Our project is to bring fresh, local, yogurt, from grass grazed cows, to the public.  We only bottle milk from cows that graze on grass and are not treated with growth hormones. Our plant is built on the farm of our friends, dairy farmers, Bill Dix and Stacy Hall. We pasteurize our milk at the lowest legal temperature and for the shortest legal time, we also choose to not homogenize our milk.  Our process lets the milk taste the way it used to, fresh.  We have already installed a nano filtration system to cold concentrate our fat free milk for Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams.  We can use this technology to make a yogurt which is very high in protein and thick like Greek style yogurt.   Our friends and fans have been asking for yogurt since we first brought our wonderful milk to market; all we need now is the funding.

Snowville Creamery is a community conscious company. We have been looking for a way to become “community capitalized” to avoid having to accrue any more debt with financial institutions, which are not lending in any case.  As we talked about community funding we learned two things.  One is that we cannot have more than a dozen investors without coming under the purview of the Federal Trade Commission, the other is that there is already a platform for crowd funding: Kickstarter.  So we don’t have to reinvent the “wheel of fortune” just to bring our wonderful grass grazed yogurt to the marketplace.
