“Consumers want to know who produces their food, but they also want us to demonstrate that their food is produced in a way that minimizes impact on the environment,” said Christopher Noble, a dairy farmer with Craig Station Ventures. “We developed this project with those thoughts in mind.”
About the Company: Craigs Station is a joint venture of eight family-run farms and Dairy Farmers of America, a leading farmer-owned milk marketing cooperative and dairy foods processor. Located alongside fields of cows, barns and milking parlors at Noblehurst Farms in York, NY, Craigs Station is a state-of-the-art facility that combines the resources of a leading dairy company with cutting-edge technology and the traditional goodness of family farming.

About the project: In the fall of 2014, Craigs Station opened up their 14,000 sq. ft. cold milk separation facility in the town of York on Noblehurst Farms. The facility receives about 1 million pounds of fresh milk a day and separates it to 990,000 pounds per day of standardized milk and cream. The plant is run on renewable energy that comes from an anaerobic digester. The Livingston County IDA provided assistance in the form of a payment in lieu of tax agreement, sales tax exemption, and mortgage recording exemption.
