About Grassfield Farm:
Grassfields is a WMCoop producer. This family owned and operated farm has been in the family since the early 1920s. In 1992 we switched from confinement dairying to intensive rotational grazing. We enjoy watching our happy animals munching on the grass all summer long, and enjoying the outdoors, even in snow! (They have shelter if they need it, but they prefer to be outside!)

In 2002, we decided to start making raw-milk cheese (we’re the first place in Michigan licensed to make and sell raw milk cheese), and now offer seven different varieties of cheese, along with pastured poultry, eggs, beef, pork, and lamb. The meats are available in our on-farm store in Coopersville, Michigan.

In the spring of 2007, Grassfields was certified Organic! Our cheeses are all certified organic, and better yet, made from raw milk from grass-fed cows! The meats and eggs are steroid, hormone, and antibiotic-free.
