Gettyvue Farm

Stewart’s Shops was awarded the BEST milk and BEST Chocolate Milk in New York by Cornell University Department of Food Science in August of 2020. This award was made possible by the quality of milk that Stewart’s sources from local dairy farms,  Stewart’s is proud to partner with the top dairy producers in upstate New York.

We source our raw milk from 23 dairy farms across Washington, Saratoga and Rensselaer counties, picking up over 25,000 gallons of milk each day and processing it at our dairy plant in Greenfield, NY.

Today we are spotlighting the award winning Gettyvue Farm, a longstanding supplier for Stewart’s Shops.
