Meet Your Suppliers: Natural by Nature

Natural by Nature is a Green Chef dairy products supplier that sets the standard of truly organic dairy products. It is a family-owned and -operated business that procures 100% of its milk from other family-owned farms. Natural Dairy Products Corporation (Natural by Nature) was created in 1994 by Ned MacArthur and his father, Norman, who teamed up with four local organic dairy farmers in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. They created a sustainable process to produce, transport, process, and package grass-fed organic milk. Natural by Nature now supports over 35 family-owned and -operated farms, three of which are the original pioneering farms. One of these farms is Spring Creek Farms.

Spring Creek Farms has one simple but powerful goal: to raise the healthiest food possible and be good stewards of the environment. Because of their commitment to sustainability and producing high-quality ingredients, Natural by Nature and Green Chef confidently source dairy products from Spring Creek’s grass-based certified organic dairy farm.

Located in Pennsylvania, Spring Creek Farms holds 140 head of cows for milking that are moved every 12 hours to optimize their feeding quality. The cows range from Jersey, Ayrshire, and Holstein breeds. Each cow is raised entirely on open pasture from birth to present.

Beginning in 1991, Forrest Stricker, head of the farm, committed to organic farming and ceased all synthetic chemical use on the farm. In 1999, the farm was transitioned entirely and certified organic. Forrest is the fourth generation to grow up and work on the farm. The Strickers are committed to bringing the highest-standard products from their farm to your doorstep.
