About Us
Lifeline Farm is the oldest certified organic farm in Montana. Located in Victor, MT, owner Ernie is a longtime biodynamic dairy farmer. His partner, Jen, came on as an intern and now manages the dairy which allows for Ernie to work more with processing and marketing.
Practices
Lifeline farm is certified Organic and Certified Biodynamic. Biodynamic farming practice involves a commitment to managing a farm as a whole farm organism. This includes minimizing off-farm inputs (80% of feed is grown on the farm) and nourishing the soil life with manure-based composts. Ernie strongly believes that good milk and cheese starts with good soil. "If the soil is healthy, it supports a variety of plants and grasses. You can really taste the different plants and grasses that change the milk as they change with the seasons," Ernie says. These exceptional flavors and the superior quality of Lifeline's dairy products have made them a Montana favorite.

All cheeses, butter and milk are certified Organic and handcrafted. From farm to fork within Montana's beautiful Bitterroot Valley.
