This past winter, while traveling home from Kansas City, I got to stop at Traders Point Creamery in Zionsville, IN. The creamery is located just outside of Indianapolis. I have seen their products before at Whole Foods Market. Their motto is "Fresh, Simple, Organic, Grassfed". As you can see from the picture on the right, these cows do indeed eat grass. I never believed in all this grass fed talk until I tasted the different myself.
The creamery produces a number of products including cream line milk (this is milk that has not been homogenized), aged cheeses, fresh cheese, and whole milk yogurt (which is drinkable). We purchased some of the cream line chocolate milk, wild berry yogurt, and raw milk cheddar. It nice being able to buy directly from the company without having to pay for the markup of the grocery store.
Since it was winter and muddy, we didn't take any kind of tour. But there are several tour options available. We just took a short walk to see the cows. They have an empty barn that is used for a farmer's market. We also visited the restaurant, and saw the room where they store their cheese to age. You can also watch through the window as they bottle their milk and yogurt.
Traders Point Creamery is a fun place to visit, great for the kids. I wish there was better conditions when we where there. But we still got to enjoy their wonderful dairy products. I hope to be able to return someday to get more of the experience. The farm and store are located at 9101 Moore Road, Zionsville, Indiana 46077. Their phone number is (317) 733-1700.
