From Claremore, OK.
Made from Grade A Raw Milk.
Started in 1923 with just one cow, we are now one of the most diversified dairies, doing more than just milking cows. Ruby and Harley Swan, Sr. started with that one cow and eventually grew the herd and the business. The business began delivering milk in classic glass bottles to Claremore residents. In 1946, the milk route was sold due to help shortage from WWII, and we began to sell our milk to a local processor. About five years after selling the milk route, Ruby and Harley, Sr. began selling Grade A raw milk to the public, straight from the farm. In 1962, Ruby and Harley, Sr.’s sons, Harley, Jr. and Larry, bought the dairy to continue the legacy. In 1972, Harley, Jr. and his wife Dorothy bought Larry’s portion of the dairy and continued to sell raw milk at the farm.
Diane, the daughter of these second generation farmers, returned home to the dairy to begin making cheese beginning with our hand-crafted Colby cheese in April of 1985, followed closely by our cheddar and jalapeno-flavored cheddar cheeses in June that same year. Diane has perfected the craft over the past several decades and is the person behind the brand, Oklahoma Premium Cheese. Between 1985 and 2016, we added six cheeses to our always growing list of premium cheese.
