One Source CheeseBurnett Dairy Cooperative is from a place where farm families work side-by-side with crop and dairy experts to produce the highest quality milk, from the ground up. We actively manage the entire process of making great cheese – from soil and feed to animal health and milk quality. Burnett Dairy is proud to be farmer-owned since 1896.
