The Alliance Grazing Group produces the highest quality dairy products with happy and productive employees and contented cows, while enhancing all aspects of the environment and embracing sustainability. Alliance has three grass-based dairies. Owners Ron St. John and Sandy McArthur expanded into grazing dairies in 2006.
Workers at our first grazing dairy, Piedmont, started milking cows in 2006. This dairy is located in Trenton, Florida. The second grazing dairy, Southpoint, is located about 20 miles away from Trenton in Chiefland, Florida. Our staff began milking cows there in 2009. In 2011, Alliance Grazing Group’s third grazing dairy, Grassy Bell, opened in Bell, Florida.
