Nice Farms Creamery Builds a Modern Business the Old-Fashioned Way

After serving in the military for five years, Bob Miller returned to his family’s dairy farm in American Corner in Caroline County. His family has practiced responsible farming techniques for many years, and Bob sought to build on this expertise while diversifying the farm. In 2009, Bob launched Nice Farms Creamery. Nice Farms specializes in cream-line milk and yogurt products that are produced right on their dairy farm.

Bob was able to secure a loan through the Caroline County Small Business Loan Program to help open Nice Farms. The loan paid for processing and packaging equipment in the creamery. Caroline County Economic Development also helped connect Bob with many other resources that help small and ag-based businesses.

The non-homogenized, grass-fed dairy products produced by Nice Farms Creamery meet the ever-increasing consumer demand for healthier, more natural foods. This has resulted in steady growth for Nice Farms since they opened. Nice Farms’ product line has expanded to include butter and home-churned ice cream.

In addition to onsite sales at the creamery, Nice Farms products are now available at many farmers markets and natural food stores throughout the region.
