Sand Creek Farm was the 1st raw Cow Milk dairy in the history of Texas, beginning with our license in 2004. We closed our dairy to public production in Aug. of 2016 and no longer offer raw milk for sale. However, we are happy to share with you the pros/cons of a raw milk dairy, and the profitable way to run a raw milk dairy if it is a jouney on which you are led to embark.
Or, if you belive that having your own home milk cow is the direction you would like to go, we will also happily teach you to have success in this venture as well.
We still retain milk cows on the farm for our family and provide a few healthy cows for sale each year, see the Cows for Sale page. We continue to annually test each cow in our small herd for BLV, Johnes, TB, and Brucellosis.
NOW AVAILABLE: RAW MILK DAIRY TRAINING COURSE - $500, printed materials and certificate included. Private or group course available. Email the farm for a class.

We became Farmers to provide healthy foods for our family and to empower you and the next generation to do the same. We wanted foods free of chemicals, free of antibiotics, free of hormones, free of GMO's, free of soy, and full of nutrients, so we bought a farm, moved out of the city and started growing and producing our own food.
After 2 years of "hobby" farming on 40 acres we moved to our current farm of 169 acres in 2006.
In 2009 we sold our commerical construction company of 15 years, our "real job" in the city, and became full time farmers. We have now been farming for ~13 years and feed, mentor, and teach others to do the same.
Having made the journey from "City Folks" to "Country Folks" - let us tell you, if we can do it, anyone can do it! If you need help, we can teach you what we have learned. email Ben Godfrey for private, custom consultation.
