Our Family Farmers
Hastings Creamery was built with a passion for serving the community. As a farmer-owned creamery built on generations of family farms, we focus on producing quality products that taste good and are good for you while seeking to ensure that the next generation can successfully continue to farm.
Our producers are passionate about the work that they do; their land and its stewardship, the well-being of their cows, and providing superior milk and dairy products to their friends, family, and neighbors. We serve the community like it is our own family.
We focus on nurturing our local communities, supporting small farmers, and delivering better-sourced dairy to people like you.

Humane Treatment of Cows
Safe farming practices are one of our top priorities. We implement strict regulations and inspections to ensure attention to detail and quality.

History of Hastings Creamery
Hastings Cooperative Creamery was founded in 1913 as a butter manufacturer and began bottling milk in 1920. Raw milk continues to be sourced from local farms in Minnesota and Wisconsin and our manufacturing facilities are still housed in Hastings, Minnesota.
Over the years the Hastings Creamery brand has continued to grow and evolve but has always remained true to our values and promise to our loyal customers. Our focus is on providing the highest quality products to our customers, including our own families. This includes the brands we own and operate with. As our brand continues to grow, the quality of our products will not change.
Hastings Creamery is honored to carry on the 125-year legacy of cheesemaking in Comstock, WI. Staying true to our Midwestern roots, we proudly produce local products including organic, small batch Artisan cheeses, that support our communities and the farmers and families within them.
Hastings Creamery is located in Hastings, MN with our cheese plant located in Comstock, WI. We have retail stores in both locations.
