Since 1902, members of the Daninger family have run a dairy operation on the south side of Forest Lake, Minnesota. Modern milking machines and technological advances in the new micro-creamery make today’s dairy vastly different from that early 1900s farm, yet Autumnwood Farm bears one strong resemblance to its forerunner: a commitment to producing natural dairy products.
Today, third- and fourth-generation farmers Patrick and Sharlene Daninger and their children run a high-quality 21st century operation using the finest in dairy equipment and the latest environmentally sound agricultural methods to put fresh milk and milk products on your table. Their milking cows are raised with rotational grazing, naturally. The micro-creamery puts “freshness” in every bottle of milk or cream as the cows’ milk is immediately processed and bottled on site.
As a family business with long-held ties to the land, Autumnwood Farm is fully invested in the animals, the land, and everything the land produces. The entire farm is managed in a highly sustainable and environmentally balanced manner. The Daninger family has been honored with awards for top-quality milk, community service, and environment-respecting farming practices. From “the grass to the glass,” you won’t find fresher milk anywhere.
