Shatto Milk Company is a small, family owned and operated, dairy farm located just north of the Kansas City metropolitan area. Our family has been farming here for more than 100 years and began a dairy farm more than 60 years ago. In June 2003 our family began processing our own milk on the farm. We decided to bottle our own milk for the purpose of providing our customers with the freshest and best tasting dairy products possible.
Shatto Milk Company products can be described by one simple statement that we have adopted as our motto, MILK AT ITS FINEST. Our family goes to great lengths to insure that the products we sell are truly the freshest and best tasting.
- The milk sold by Shatto Milk Company comes from cows not treated with rbST (recombinant bovine somatotropin) or recombinant bovine growth hormone (rbGH).**
- Shatto Milk comes only from the cows located on our family farm.
- Shatto Milk can be from the cow to the store in as little as 12 hours.
- All of us at Shatto Milk Company have made it our top priorities to (1) limit the number of times the milk is handled, and (2) to process our milk in a manner that maintains its superior taste.
To give you a true feel for where our milk comes from, how it is processed, and our packaging methods, we made a concerted effort to create a transparent processing plant. Our processing plant is a place where everyone is invited to visit and see firsthand how Shatto Milk Company produces the freshest milk around. Visit our Tours and Special Events page for more information about touring our farm.
We invite you, your family, and all of your friends to visit us on our farm, take a tour or just check-out our country store anytime Monday through Friday 8 AM to 6 PM, Saturday 8 AM to 4PM and Sunday 9 AM to 4 PM.
Many people ask and are excited about our packaging methods. We at Shatto Milk Company have decided to provide our milk in glass bottles. The reasons for this decision are very simple. First, the glass bottle tends to keep milk colder, and colder milk is more desirable. Second, glass bottles are environmentally friendly. Our glass bottles can be washed and reused as many times as they are returned. Thus, recycling and reusing our bottles lowers the amount of material dumped in area landfills on a daily basis. Third, unlike paper cartons or plastic, glass imparts no foreign odor or flavor. Fourth, glass bottles are most notable in history for containing farm fresh milk from the local family farm, and that is exactly what you are getting from us. Let there be no doubt - our product is different - it is handled with the utmost care and packaged in the best container available, glass.
