Our family has been farming in the Long Green Valley for over 100 years and five generations. John Mathias Prigel moved to the property which is now Bellevale Farm as a sharecropper in 1895, and Prigels have been dairy farming here ever since. We are now diversifying our farming practices to enable our business to survive in changing times. Prigel Family Creamery will allow Bellevale Farm to be economically and environmentally sustainable and a continuing part of Long Green Valleys agricultural heritage
Bellevale Farm received its organic certification in 2008. Organic practices ensure the good health of our herd and the high quality of our milk. Our 150 milk cows graze fresh grass day and night. We prefer natural holistic remedies for the health of our cows instead of antibiotics and synthetic hormones. The average dairy cow on industrial farms only lives about four years, with two years milk production. We breed our cows for longevity and strong bodies, instead of high milk production so our cows will have “15 trouble-free years” of productive life. Our milk meets or exceeds quality standards and our cows’ health is excellent, clearly their lifestyle agrees with them.
