Happy Pack Rat Day!

Happy Pack Rat Day

So what the heck is Pack Rat Day anyway?

Well, it’s celebrated on May 17, first of all. And while the day is meant to encourage us to embrace the fact that we want to keep stuff, and suggests that you shouldn’t throw your old belongings, clothes or even rubbish away as it might be useful or valuable in days or years to come, we see it as a chance to rethink all those useless things you’ve been hoarding in your basement, your attic or wherever your stuff eventually gravitates to (I mean, do you really need two fondue sets?).

Happy Earth Day!


Here at Hiland Dairy, we like to think of every day as Earth Day! That’s because we are always working to find new ways to reduce our use of natural resources while we reuse and recycle as many materials as we can.

But, today is a good day to remember that we are all in this together. Our farmers and employees live in the same communities, use the same water sources and visit the same parks as you…so every act we take, no matter how small, can make a difference.

Home Sweet Hiland Home: The Sustainability Story

Our dairy farmers’ lives are tied to this land. The fields their cows graze, the water they drink and the air they breathe all contribute to the rich, wholesome milk they provide. And more than just the cows, our farmer-owners live, work and send their kids to school here too. So at Hiland Dairy, we pride ourselves on being local – not only because it means that the milk we provide is as fresh as it can possibly be, but also because it means we’re personally invested in the communities we serve.

Because of this, we take the notion of sustainability very seriously. It’s good for the environment. It’s good for our customers and neighbors. And, frankly, it’s good for business. You could say it’s a win-win-win.
