1/2 gallon of the best tasting milk available in the Triangle, now at your front door!
The most unique quality to our products is method in which we pasteurize. Most milk today is pasteurized under the HTST (High Temperature Short Time) Pasteurization method. Under this method, milk is pasteurized at 161 degrees for 15 seconds. This method allows milk plants to pasteurize more milk in a shorter period of time.
At Homeland Creamery, we know that you can’t rush flavor. Vat Pasteurization is one of the earlier methods used in cooking milk. This method heats the milk in batches at a lower temperature for about 30 minutes. During this method, a high percentage of the milk's natural enzymes and beneficial bacteria is retained which adds to the flavor and health benefits of the milk.
Farming on our homestead can be traced back seven generations to Peter Bowman. Peter’s wife Tracy purchased 130 acres for their son Ruffin Bowman who continued his family’s farming practices operating a cotton gin, cotton press, feed mill, and saw mill.
Ruffin’s son Albert pursued a political career as a NC legislator but couldn’t resist his love of farming. Albert grew tobacco and sold “barnyard” milk part-time.
Roy Bowman, Albert’s son, began milking around 13 cows by hand. In 1947 Roy began a “Grade A” dairy so his sons Russell and Dwight could begin farming when they returned from home from serving in World War II. In 1960, Roy along with his two sons built their first milking barn with a double 4 Delaval, with automatic milkers. This parlor allowed the Bowman’s to milk 8 cows at one time increasing order and efficiency.
In 1987 Roy’s sons along with his two grandsons, Chris and David, expanded by building a 16 head parlor which allowed them to grow their herd from 75 to 140 cows.
In the late 1990’s dairies all over the nation were suffering from high commodity prices and low milk prices and the Bowmans were no exception. In 2000, brothers Chris and David along with their wives Jayne and Terry poured the new foundation to Homeland Creamery.
The Creamery processed their first batch of milk which amounted to 30 gallons. They sold every jug right away to neighbors and local stores in their community.
Today with the help of their 25 dairy and creamery employees the creamery processes over 7,000 gallons per week. Each week 3 route drivers deliver to various retailers, coffee shops, and bakeries from Winston Salem to Raleigh. In addition to the 3 routes Homeland Creamery manages, various distributors deliver products as for East as Wilmington NC and as far West as Asheville, NC.
