Experience the difference of farm-fresh dairy!

At Sprouts, we source only the best dairy, eggs and cheese for you and your family to enjoy. That’s why we take good care to ensure our products are full of all the goodness you need, without all the things you don’t. When you shop our wide variety of eggs and dairy, like cage-free eggs or rBST-free milk, you can feel good knowing these household staples are crafted with quality in mind. Milk

Delicious dairy

With so many different labels like raw, pasteurized, rBST-free, grass-fed and organic, it can be hard to know what you’re looking for when choosing your milk. At Sprouts, we make it simple by proudly carrying ALL rBST-free* milk and yogurt! rBST was created in the 90s to increase a cow’s ability to produce milk. Although the dairy industry has been allowed to use rBST in their cows for decades, we believe non-GMO and rBST-free milk is best. Plus, we strive to work with local dairy farms whenever possible to source high-quality, wholesome milk. When you enjoy locally-sourced milk from Sprouts, you’re not only supporting the community, but you get to experience fresher, tastier milk straight from the farm to your table.

What about organic?

When you shop USDA Certified Organic milk, cheese or yogurts, you can feel confident it’s free from rBGH or rBST. Strict regulations are set by the USDA to prohibit the use of any synthetic hormone in certified organic products. Certified organic milk also requires the animal to be kept in a healthy, low-stress environment—happy cows make the best milk!

Grass-fed? We have that too!

The term “grass-fed” has been a hot topic in the meat industry for a while and it’s beginning to make a strong name in the dairy industry as well! Grass-fed dairy means that the cows are fed only grass during their life–no corn, soy or grains. Some organic milk will come from grass-fed cows since organic standards require some access to the outdoors, allowing for natural grazing.

*Sprouts offers pasture-raised and other varieties of milk and eggs. Milk is pasteurized before bottling, except in AZ and CA where raw milk is sold.


Cage-free, free-range, pasture-raised … oh my!

All of our Sprouts Brand eggs are cage-free or better and we strive to ensure any other brand we bring into our store upholds at least cage-free standards.
  • Cage-free: This means the animal is not contained in a cage and they are free to walk around in a sheltered environment. However, this method doesn’t require the animal to have any outdoor access.
  • Free-range: The USDA’s definition for free-range requires the bird has access to the outdoors in some capacity. If a brand claims “free-range”, it often means that the animal has access to the outdoors but doesn’t mean they are certified free-range. The HFAC’s Certified Humane® requires at least 2 sq. ft. per bird with at least six hours of outside time per day.
  • Pasture-raised: This requires at least 108 sq. ft. of outdoor access per bird year-round and indoor protection available for the animal in order to be certified pasture-raised.
