About Us

The Gilman Creamery was founded in 1923 by farmers in need of a local outlet for their milk. The creamery operated as a skimming station for many years before it was converted to a butter factory. In the early 1930's, we began selling feed. Our present-day business is organized and operated on a cooperative basis, supplying merchandise and services to patrons and marketing milk for area farmers.

Today's Gilman Co-op Creamery is dedicated to serving the needs of our customers, our employees, our suppliers, and our community. Our goal is to supply superior products in a timely fashion.

The Gilman philosophy embraces helpfulness, integrity, honesty, individual freedom of thought, dignity of work, self-discipline, and humor. We plan continued growth through innovation and quality.

Who would think that such a little bean could be so important?

Benefits of roasting your soybeans:

  • Soybeans are an important source of protein, vitamins & minerals. Roasting your soybeans makes them even more beneficial. When you roast your beans you're killing trypsin inhibitors which can be very dangerous & damaging to animals protein digestion in the small intestine.
  • Roasting your beans lowers soluble protein while increasing bypass protein.
  • Roasted beans have been proven to increase milk yield & farmers report a higher butterfat content.
  • Roasting your soybeans makes the protein, fat & amino acids of the soybean easier to digest.
  • Also proven to quicken weight gain in pigs & deer, farmers claim they produce larger antlers & a better body condition.
  • Still not a believer? Just ask "Bessie" herself - cows love the taste of roasted soybeans! Give us a call if you'd like us to roast your beans or to add roasted beans into your animals diet. 320-387-2770. We have on-hand nutritionists available every day!
