Welcome to Wainwright Dairy
Home of the Farm Fresh, All Natural Milk and Cheese
Carl Wainwright began in the dairy industry in 1958 working for Gustafson’s in Green Cove Springs. In the late 60’s along with his wife, Gail, they started farming in Suwannee County and as their family grew with nine children, their dream of a family farm became a reality. Their sons James and Roy work at the dairy and their daughters Lisa and Cheryl and their families help in the cheese plant.
The Wainwrights have been planning for their first cheese market day for several years. When asked why cheese, Carl replied “We are a family farm and want to stay that way. Preserving what God has given us and making a living on the land”. All natural cheese was a complimentary business addition to their dairy as the demand for wholesome, natural foods continues to rise as Americans become more concerned with their health and food additives.
It truly has become a family operation from the dairy to the cheese making and bottling to designing the pictures on their delivery truck and labels. Using fresh milk, the Wainwrights make cheese twice weekly.
