Our Philosophy

We are farmers. We have been our whole lives. We are dairy farmers and love animals from our dogs and cats to our cows and horses. We feel fortunate to have been able to live our long lives working on our own farm.

We understand farming can be a low margin business with lots of opportunity for weather, pests or other situations out of our control, to affect our profitability. We also understand how much work it is. One farmer told me he is not sure if he ever had COVID as each night his body aches from all the work.

Cowsmo could be a much more profitable business if someone else ran it. We price our products in a manner so we are fair. We do not price it so we are the same as our competition. Price often is perceived to indicate quality. The higher the price, the better the product. Our products compete very well with the high priced brands with fancy marketing in the soil where it counts.

We will make and have made mistakes, and we apologize for that. We hope you recognize we are trying our best to avoid them. We try to provide excellent service that goes beyond industry norms.

Lastly, we value our relationship with you. Many of us have grown up in this business together. We have seen the ups and downs individually or as an industry. Your lives are important to us.
