"Treasured Sunrise Acres" is located in the Treasure Valley of Western Idaho.
The dairy was licensed in May 2010, to sell fresh raw goat and cow milk within the state of Idaho. This is a small family run dairy, with no employees.
Around 125 dairy goats, including the replacement doelings, milking does, and herd sires, make up the current goat herd. Breeds raised include; Alpine, LaMancha, Nubian, Oberhasli, Saanen, Toggenburg, and Golden Guernseys. Many of the goats are registered and shown at the local fairs.
Treasured Sunrise Acres!
ISDA Licensed Grade A RAW Goat & Cow Milk Dairy
Our small herd of Jersey and Brown Swiss cows, produce excellent creamy milk our customers love!
Both the goats and cows graze in the large irrigated pastures from early spring through late fall. They are also fed excellent quality alfalfa hay and a dairy mix grain formulated for milking animals.
All of our animals are sleek, fat, and healthy, and are given no hormones/drugs/antibiotics that would affect the quality of the milk.
We obtained our first milk goat in 1997, to provide fresh milk for our family. Within a few years the herd had grown into quite a few nice does, with several members of the family owning a couple goats of their own, as 4-H projects.
After a divorce, our family turned to the dairy goat hobby as a source of income. In Nov 2009, we moved from the Willamette Valley, Oregon, where it was impossible to have a raw milk dairy, to Fruitland, Idaho. We were blessed with a small dairy facilities to rent, and a great retired dairyman, to help us get started. To be honest, we had no idea how a commercial dairy worked or what we were getting ourselves into! The goat milk was to be the main focus, but with requests for fresh cows milk, we latter added our two Jersey family milk cows to the operation.
May 2010, we received our Grade A permit/Raw Milk license, and begin providing customers with the same fresh raw goat and cows milk that our family had been enjoying for years.
The spring of 2012, we were blessed with our own 53 acre dairy! Having outgrown the small acreage at the Fruitland dairy, with the addition of several more milking cows, we acquired something with more pasture. After a year of working on the old dairy barn, we were finally able to get it licensed in June 2013, and moved the cows to the new place.
