Happy Days Goat Dairies

Happy Days Goat Dairies

Happy Days Goat Dairies was founded in 1993 as a family business in Salmon Arm, BC. Due to  a consistent commitment to quality and customer care, we have grown to the largest supplier of fluid goat milk in Western Canada, and play an important role in  supplying retail stores and the food service industry with a variety of goat milk cheeses, goat milk yogurts, and goat milk ice cream.

We have 14 farmers under contract in BC and Alberta. We process all of our goat milk in 3 locations; Salmon Arm, BC (processing and office), Chilliwack, BC (processing and retail store), and Ponoka, AB, (custom processing). Processing the milk close to where it is produced, inhances the quality and helps the environment.

Our suppliers are committed and motivated farmers, taking good care of their animals and producing the highest quality milk, everyday. (see more info on the staff/producers page). All goats have a year round diet of hay and grains (about 10%). Customers often ask about antibiotics and growth hormones. We guarantee that all of our products are guaranteed free of antibiotics and growth hormones. Growth hormones are not even available for goats.

We process all milk with the utmost care and knowledge. All our three plants are CFIA inspected and approved. Goat milk is very sensitive, and careful processing practices are extremely important.
