Steensma Creamery is a fourth-generation family farm committed to regenerative food production in conscious partnership with our animals and land. We believe that the closer we are to where our food is grown, the better it is for our bodies, our planet, and our palate. In 2021, we launched the Pacific Northwest’s first local skyr yogurt, hand crafted with milk from our pastured dairy cows. Our skyr is creamy, flavorful, and sustainable from soil to spoon.
In addition to pastured dairy products, we sell whole, half, and quarter shares of pastured beef. These animals are 2 year old Jersey steers from our herd. While Jersey cattle are traditionally a dairy breed, they are increasingly valued for their meat. Their propensity for marbling yields a juicy, buttery flavor.
*Regenerative* *Pasture-based* *No till*
We are committed to using regenerative farming practices and sustainably-made packaging that is reusable, recyclable, and/or compostable.
Our cattle are rotationally grazed from spring to fall, and fed with homegrown forages in the winter. Our pastures haven't been tilled in over 25 years. We believe these practices are best for the long-term health of our animals, land, and planet.

Skyr is an Icelandic-style strained yogurt, rich in protein and probiotics. Our skyr yogurt is produced with whole milk from our pastured dairy cows, and live, active cultures. We gravity-strain it through cheesecloth - the traditional Icelandic method - for a full-bodied texture and creamy flavor. Skyr is delicious by the spoonful, and makes a versatile ingredient in sweet or savory dishes. Please contact email@example.com for a wholesale order sheet.
