Where Our Milk Goes
Willow Bend Farm is very proud to sell our milk to Upstate Niagara Milk Co-operative. Upstate Niagara is a local Western New York (WNY) milk co-operative owned by 350 WNY dairy farmers. WNY is noted for high quality milk products as well as for serving our local communities. Our fluid milk is sold in the two major grocery store chains of the area, Wegman’s and Tops, where it can be found under their store brand labels. Our milk is also sold under our own “Upstate Farms” label, and can be found in most of the local convenience stores and chain stores and in Walmart as well.
Please enjoy this video telling of our passion for dairy farming and of the Upstate Niagara co-op that serves us so well. Please look for the Upstate Niagara label for our high quality milk products.
