Flying Cow Creamery
Cow Creamery was started in 2013 by two friends, Selma Bjarnadottir and Keith Fagernes. Keith is the Dairy
farmer that raises the
cows that provide the milk for the creamery's products. Selma
runs the Creamery and is the primary Yogurt maker.
The Dairy and Creamery are located in beautiful Independence Valley.
We originally started making yogurt at the
Black Sheep Creamery in Adna.
We leased their creamery one day a week for one year but in May
2014 we finished building our own creamery that sits across the
road from the dairy on Independence road near Rochester.
The dream of having a creamery was sparked many years ago.
It took a long time, and a lot of hard work and determination to
make it a reality. We are thankful to finally be in
production and making wonderful yogurt for our community.
Selma has always been an advocate for healthy and happy lives
for farm animals. She believes that we
farmers are obligated to give them the very best life we can, because
we respect them and
they are our nourishment. The first thing Keith thinks
about in the morning and the last thing he thinks about at night
are his 'ladies' (the dairy cows). That is a true farmer.
Their welfare is his passion. The very high quality milk
they provide is because he cares and because he strives to make their
lives as good as he possibly can. The reward is a
super high quality milk not found in many places. (see
