Pi Creamery is a family business with health and wellness at the center of our farm-based model. We believe in a small herd with holistic practices, including hand-milking, a varied diet, and preventative treatments as opposed to antibiotics and vaccines. The philosophy of Pi Creamery is to uphold the highest standards in the treatment of our herd animals, the care and safety of the milk, and the product available to our herd share members.

Pi Today’s the day! As part of the rollicking, outrageous, and ever-in-the-news celebrations of this special date — 3-14 a.k.a. “Pi day” — we are excited to officially launch Pi Creamery into the world.

As many of you know, we love our goats!  These special creatures are a big part of our farm family, and for 9 months each year they provide us with gallons of healthy, rich, and deliciously flavorful milk each day. In addition to sharing  raw milk with our community, we can think of no better way to use this bounty than to turn it into our favorite food: ICE CREAM!

You may be asking yourself: Why Pi? Why did we choose this name for our creamery, you ask? There’s a story!

See, when Papa Tuck and Martha Teutsch bought the farm back in the early 70’s, these two Texas expats needed a name for their new home. Ambitiously (some may say ostentatiously!) they called their 15 acre homestead “The Lazy T Ranch”. No ranch is complete without a unique brand (the real, steel kind), so my dad took the two initials of our shared name “TT” and gave it a curving, “lazy” top. Et Voila! The Pi symbol became our sigil. For us, the Pi symbol represents not only a mathematical constant, but the circle of life, which we try to honor here on our farm. In the last 30 years, the farm has grown to over a hundred acres of forest and field, and now supports multiple households, a tyrannical goat herd, chickens, ducks, dogs, cats, an awkward llama, and a dream for a new line of raw goat’s milk ice creams. We all live together, completing the circle of life! Like us, why don’tcha?
