MILK AT ITS FINEST
Shatto Milk Company is a small, family owned and operated, dairy farm located just north of the Kansas City metropolitan area. The Shatto family has been farming there for more than 100 years and began the dairy farm more than 60 years ago. The milk sold by Shatto Milk Company comes from cows not treated with rbST (recombinant bovine somatotropin) or recombinant bovine growth hormone (rbGH) and comes only from the cows located on our family farm.
