Hartzler Family Dairy

A word about our Milk products...

Because our Whole Milk and 2% Milk products are non-homogenized, the cream portion of the milk rises to the top and you will likely be able to see the cream line. Because of this, our whole and 2% milk should be shaken before being poured. You can even take the end of a spoon and push the cream down into the milk before shaking. The cream is the reason Hartzler’s milk is a healthier milk product than most other milk brands.

In addition, because our milk is processed using a unique low-temperature vat pasteurization method, it has a shorter shelf-life than most milk. This is another reason our milk is more wholesome and better for you!

All of our milk products come in 1/2-gallon recyclable glass bottles.


Whole Milk

If you’re looking for old-fashioned milk, this is it. It’s our richest, creamiest product. Many people tell us this is the way it tasted many years ago when milk was delivered to their front door. On cold days, the frozen cream popped the tops off the milk bottles and siblings argued over who got to eat this “iced” cream.

In addition, whole milk is making a comeback as a healthy milk selection because milk-fat is responsible for nutrient delivery to the body (read more).



2% Milk

This is a good, flavorful choice for many families. You will see a small cream line inside the top of these red-labeled bottles. You will need to gently shake the bottle to spread the creaminess throughout the milk before serving it.






Skimmed Milk

It tastes great without any of the fat. Look for the blue labels in your grocer’s dairy aisle.






Whole Chocolate Milk

Many folks have compared it to drinking a chocolate milkshake. We readily admit this whole milk, sugar and cocoa blend is not an everyday treat for the calorie-conscious. Shake well and pour to enjoy one fine velvety smooth dairy beverage. Makes great hot chocolate, too!
