Small Farm. Big Dreams.
Ron and Barbara Crain have been operating Crain Dairy in northwest Oklahoma since 1991. We eventually began to experiment with the farm’s milk and made a few small batches of Greek yogurt. It received rave reviews. After ten years of selling milk to a national dairy cooperative and seeing our milk go straight out of the door, we had to ask: why mix high quality, grass-fed milk with milk from confinement dairies and ship it thousands of miles away when it could be transformed into delicious foods for people right here in Oklahoma?
So in 2001, we began working with the Food and Agricultural Products Center at OSU and with Pladot, an Israeli dairy equipment supplier, to realize our dream. We built a small, certified production facility, learned to make a handful of dairy products from scratch, and named the operation Wagon Creek Creamery. WCC has been selling fresh, grass-fed dairy products since the summer of 2005.
In 2007, we added grass-fed beef and pasture-raised veal to our product listing. The cows and steers are raised on our farm's 157 acres, and they are never given grain or growth hormones (rBST). Their healthy, all-grass diet ensures healthier dairy products.
Today, Wagon Creek Creamery remains one of the nation’s few 100% grass-fed dairy processors. Our list of products has expanded to include not only Greek yogurt and butter, but also aged, raw milk cheeses, creme fraiche, smoothies, granola, and granola bars. We also have pastured hens producing beautiful, healthy eggs.
