LaClare Farms has announced the purchase of Sunshine Farms Distribution fluid goat milk operation, adding to the growing line-up of LaClare Farms products.

Customers can expect a new LaClare Farms label in all former Sunshine Farms bottled goat milk products. The milk will come from the same farms, as the milk is supplied and hauled by LaClare Farms and the Quality Dairy Goat Producers Cooperative of Wisconsin. It will be available in quarts of lowfat and whole milk, as well as half gallons of whole milk, according to

“We are excited to expand our growing Wisconsin farmstead dairy operation by offering this well-regarded and established line of quality bottled goat milk,” said Greg Hedrich, LaClare Farms Business Manager.

LaClare Farms offers a wide variety of goat’s milk and mixed milk cheeses, including Evalon, Fresh Chevre, Raw Cheddar, Fondy Jack, and American Originals crafted by U.S. Championship Cheesemaker Katie Hedrich. The new LaClare Farms bottled goat milk is distributed by Vern’s Cheese, Chilton; Trust Local Foods, Little Chute; and Natural Direct in Oswego, Illinois and is available at retail locations throughout Wisconsin and Northern Illinois.

Owned by the Larry and Clara Hedrich family of Chilton, WI., LaClare Farms is currently building a new dairy processing facility north of the village of Pipe. The facility will include a state-of-the-art dairy plant, retail store and café, as well as a milking parlor and housing for 600 milking goats. The under-construction facility will also be capable of aging cheese in curing rooms, as well as producing cultured products and bottled milk. It is scheduled to begin limited operation in May 2013 and be fully completed in June 2013.
