Year Founded: 2019.

Farming Practices: The cows have access to organic pasture, ample space in well-tended barns, and are milked at their own discretion via semi- and fully robotic milking systems. Cows enter the milking parlor as they please where they are automatically fed alfalfa pellets (grown and processed by our own Silver Sage Farms) and a mixed ration of other forages, grains, proteins and minerals. Animal welfare, soil health, and seasonal growing rhythms are always a priority.

about the farm
When the name of your company is MilkRun, the pressure is on to find a milk that’s truly worth delivering to subscribers throughout the Portland community. Lulubelle’s Creamery represents the best of our region, with a humane approach to raising cattle, a local organic option, and an old-school cream-on-top pour of milk that looks, tastes and feels like it’s straight from the farm.
Lulubelle’s Creamery is made up of three organic dairies located in the Willamette Valley, producing milk for products made at the creamery. These dairies include the Rockridge and Mayfield dairies, both in Aurora, and the Valley Falls Dairy in Millersburg.
Lulubelle’s organic milk is produced by 1,500 cows roaming on 2,000 acres of organic pasture. These Holsteins and Jerseys are treated as humanely as possible — pampered even — with ample space in well-tended barns and the ability to be milked at their own discretion via semi- and fully robotic milking systems. The cows enter the milking parlor as they please where they are automatically fed alfalfa pellets (grown and processed by our own Silver Sage Farms) and a mixed ration of other forages, grains, proteins, and mineralsspecially formulated by animal nutritionists and veterinarians.
The result is nothing less than perfection: Fresh pasteurized organic grade A milk with a rich cream that naturally rises to the top due to minimal processing. Not only is this milk great for drinking on its own, but it’s also the perfect organic milk to use in homemade creations from frozen dairy treats to creamy mac n’ cheese. And, to cap everything off, Lulubelle’s is quite fond of a good pun, like this one, from one of their Instagram posts:
Q: Why do cows wear bells around their necks?
A: To make beautiful moo-sic!
