Sheldon Valley/Adjala, ON
The Den Haan Family
Sheldon Creek single-herd, pastured during the Spring and Summer. Their milk is natural and minimally processed.
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.
