Celebrate National Dairy Month with Stewart’s Shops

National Dairy Month

Stewart’s Shops is celebrating National Dairy Month this June to underscore our commitment to award winning quality milk as well as our support for local agriculture. This is a great opportunity to highlight what is different and special about our milk and dairy products.

Fresh and Local

Founded over a century ago by the Dake family as a dairy business, Stewart’s Shops prides itself on providing fresh, local milk to its customers. We source raw milk from 20 dairy farms across Washington, Saratoga and Rensselaer counties, picking up over 28,000 gallons each day and process it at our dairy plant in Greenfield, NY. This ensures our milk goes from cow to shop cooler within 48 hours, guaranteeing unparalleled freshness.

Fun Fact: One of our producers is a third-generation family dairy farm established in 1942. With roughly 400 Holstein cows, they grow their own corn and hay on about 1,000 acres of land. This farm is among the original suppliers for Stewart’s Shops, exemplifying our long-standing relationships with local farmers.

Award-Winning Dairy

We won Best Milk, Best Flavored Milk, Best Chocolate Ice Cream, and Best Open Class Ice Cream at the New York State Fair. At the World Dairy Expo, we also earned top honors, including Best Eggnog in North America, as well as awards for our Mango Dragon Fruit Sherbet and Death by Chocolate Ice Cream in their respective categories.

Quality Assurance

Maintaining rigorous standards is a key part of our dairy operations. Our in-house labs and routine regulatory inspections ensure that every container of milk meets the highest quality standards. Unlike ultra-pasteurized milk, Stewart’s milk undergoes traditional pasteurization, preserving its natural flavor and nutritional integrity.

Milk Has Health Benefits

Stewart’s milk is packed with essential nutrients such as calcium and vitamin D, perfect for a healthy diet. Low-fat chocolate milk is an excellent post-workout recovery drink, replenishing energy and aiding muscle repair. Our award-winning milk is also a key ingredient in our award-winning ice cream, soups, and mac & cheese.

Product Variety

We offer a wide range of dairy products. Alongside our traditional milk, we have flavored options like chocolate, strawberry and cappuccino. Our specialty bottled shakes, such as the limited-edition Sunshine Shake, adds to the variety. Plus, we have eggnog available year-round.
