Kalispell Kreamery, located only 10 feet from the milking barn of Hedstrom Dairy, strives to bottle the high quality milk of Hedstrom Dairy with as little processing, delay and milk manipulation as possible. What the cows give us is what you get!!
The milk is piped into the bottling plant directly from the milking barn and is pasteurized and bottled, even as the cows are being milked. The milk is as fresh as you can get! After the milk is bottled it is loaded on our truck and delivered directly to area grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants, and other venues.
In 2009 Bill and Marilyn Hedstrom and daughter and son-in-law, Mary and Jared Tuck, were discussing the ebb and flow of the dairy industry and the growing trend of minimally processed, natural, local, value-added products. Realizing they were in the unique position to meet this demand they began the work of building their own plant right next to the milk barn. With grant funding, savvy shopping, many hours of blood, sweat, and tears they were able to make this otherwise unreachable goal a reality.
Spring of 2010 Kalispell Kreamery began bottling unhomogenized, completely natural milk and selling it from the farm store. Within 6 months they were up to full production, bottling everything they were producing, and selling milk to the Flathead and as far as Eureka Missoula, and Bozeman
