Got organic milk? Rockview Dairies does. Doing business as Rockview Farms, the company produces milk and other dairy products under the brand names Rockview Farms and Good Heart Organic Milk. Bucking modern trends, the dairy owns its own farms and cows, which have not been treated with bovine growth hormones. Rockview Dairies also processes, packages, and distributes its own milk. The milk producer wholesales its products to food retailers and foodservice operators and offers home-delivery service. Established in 1927 by Bob Hops, Rockview Dairies serves Southern California. It was acquired by the late Pete DeGroot in 1965 and is still owned and operated by the DeGroot family.
Rockview Dairies operates one of the few family-owned and independently operated fluid milk plants in Southern California. It primarily serves customers in Los Angeles and Orange counties and operates farms and processing facilities in Southern California, Nevada, Texas, and Kansas.
Thanks to a movement to eat local and organic foods, Rockview Dairies has developed a successful milk-delivery business. The dairy partners with delivery companies to deliver milk and other dairy products to more than 7,500 homes located in Los Angeles and Orange counties. Milk is delivered fewer than 48 hours after milking.
Rockview Dairies is owned and operated by the DeGroot family, which acquired the operation in 1965. – less
