Spotlight on Small Business: Nice Farms Creamery

You may have heard June is National Dairy Month so we thought it would be appropriate to spotlight one of Caroline County’s dairy farms, Nice Farms Creamery in Federalsburg.

The Miller’s story began in New Jersey but in 1989 they decided to relocate to American Corner in order to expand their acreage and produce a high quality milk.

In 2009 their oldest son, Bob Miller resigned his commission as an officer in the US Army to build a creamery on the dairy farm. Bob invested his own savings and began with one 35 gallon pasteurizer and a four gallon bottler, pump and chiller. By October of that year they were producing creamline whole milk, chocolate milk, and yogurt. Since then they have added skim milk and butter as well as seasonal eggnog and ice cream.

Even with the expansions over the years they have maintained the highest quality and all of their products are made on site with their own milk. They have always believed in the importance of a pastured diet to maintain optimal health of the herd. The cows rotate between pastures each day feasting on seasonal grasses. 

If you are interested in purchasing any of their products you can visit the farm 3pm-6pm. However, they recommend calling first to ensure staff is available and products are in stock. Also, keep an eye on their Facebook page for special events and farmers market locations.
