ABOUT

The Den Haan family farm in Canada began in the 1950’s, when Marianne’s Opa and Oma emigrated from Holland following WWII.

In 1958, they bought their first 4-H dairy cow, Maggie. From there they began breeding dairy cows – 80% of their current herd are descended from Maggie herself. Things have come a long way since then – last year, John and Bonnie were named master breeders by the Holstein Association of Canada for their herd!

Though they’ve been breeding dairy cows for a long time, they began Sheldon Creek Dairy in 2012 to fill a growing demand for natural, minimally processed whole milk. They are one of the only dairies in all of Canada producing non-homogenized milk. Unlike most dairy producers, Sheldon Creek only uses fresh milk from their own herd of cows.
