Every day and every night, for more than 100 years, four generations of one family have milked cows on what came to be called Rolling Lawns Farm. Located 45 miles east of St. Louis in Greenville, Illinois, the farm was started by Sam Schmollinger, who registered his first Holstein calf in 1920. Sam’s daughter married Harry Turley who worked together to establish the herd. The farm didn’t earn its moniker until 1952, when their 15 year old son Neal registered Rolling Lawns Farm as the herd’s official prefix. A master breeder, Neal took the farm from good to great. His knack for improving the herd with every mating was matched by his wife Connie’s maternal instinct. Today, Connie Turley and their son Michael are proud to continue the family’s century-long commitment to quality. They milk 120 registered Holsteins in the farm’s red brick parlor. Every day and every night, just like the family has for 100 years.
Nestled among the quiet rolling hills of southwestern Illinois, a century-long family tradition is humbly re-defining the way we see dairy. Not through fancy labels or technological frills, but milk as pure as the lineage of the iconic Holstein cows that produce it. Where care and passion for the animal are passed on through the product, just as their standards for delivering the highest quality milk have been proudly shared through generations. An unmistakable freshness from the farm, bottled for the discerning chef and everyday food lover who demand nothing short of the highest quality ingredients. It’s not milk the way it used to be, it’s milk the way Rolling Lawns Farm has done it for more than 100 years.
