OUR VISION: GOOD STEWARDSHIP
When our farmers first established De Graafstroom Dairy in 1908, they were building much more than simply a place where they could sell and process their milk. De Graafstroom became a solid link between our farmers, our people, our buyers and other business connections and our environment. It’s a tie that still binds us today. Our past has taught us that, by opening our minds and hearts to others, and by working with others, we can build many things – very many things.
De Graafstroom is a symbol of the trust and united effort of, and between, our farmers, our people, our buyers and other business connections and our environment. Together, we work hard to produce honest and delicious products with a solid, healthy profit, yet with respect for people, animals and our planet. We dare look beyond the obvious – just as we did in 1908. We want to keep the things we have borrowed from the planet in good condition, so we can pass them on to the next generation. This is good stewardship, the foundations we have built in our (green) heart for our work in the future.
