Sprout Creek Ethical Dairy
A Model for No-Kill Dairy Farming
Sprout Creek farm offers a refreshing new alternative model from traditional farming methods as it is a No-kill farm. Our cows graze freely into old age, newborns drink from their mother’s teat, and male calves will grow into strong oxen. To ensure the cow are well looked after and ensure the cows’ future care and betterment, we provide a ‘401(k)’ retirement plan for our cows, with 10 percent of the dairy’s earnings going toward the cows’ future care and betterment. This model allows us to produce ethical ‘premium milk’ and to sustain our cows, allowing them to live the best lives. We support ethical practices through our non-profit Ecownomics.
