About Threemile Canyon Farms

For more than 20 years, Threemile Canyon Farms has responsibly provided for the nutritional needs of a growing population through our sustainable dairy and farming operations. While we are proud of our contributions, we know that what sets us apart is not just what we do, but how we do it. We were early innovators in building a "closed loop" system of sustainable farming, which is made possible by our decision to bring together crop farming and dairy production. These are highly complementary pursuits - particularly when it comes to recycling waste. We put organic waste back into the soil, which not only minimizes the amount of waste we produce but also helps keep our crops healthy. With more than 39,500 acres of irrigated farmland, we understand that our commitment to responsible farming is important to us as well as our community.

We operate in this way because of our values and commitment to the environment, our animals, and our community. Since our founding in 1998, TCF has routinely gone beyond regulatory environmental requirements and exceed established standards - because we know it is oftentimes a better expression of our values. While regulations may have changed, our commitment to sustainable farming has not. In fact, TCF has long been recognized for its leadership and commitment to sustainable practices. In April 2020, the farm was named one of three dairies nationwide - and the only one on the West Coast - to receive the Innovation Center for US Dairy's award for Outstanding Dairy Sustainability. TCF was also the first dairy to earn a 100% score on the Validus independent animal welfare audit for the care standards we apply to our 35,000 dairy cows.
