ZIONSVILLE -

Zionsville-based Traders Point Creamery says it has completed several steps to bring its brand home. In an open letter to customers, the dairy farm said it has completed efforts to return to its roots as an Indiana company and a farm-based food experience.

The company says it is now officially “farmstead,” with all of its products being crafted with milk sourced on the same property where they are made. It had previously used a different facility close to its Zionsville property.

Additionally, the company says it has adjusted its product line and will no longer provide yogurt among its dairy offerings.

"In the midst of this growth, there are some things that we’ve had to let go," Traders Point said in the letter. "We remain committed to keeping excellence and sustainability at the center of our craftsmanship, taking into account our animals, milk supply, and economics."

The company has also introduced a new bottle, which comes with a new system allowing customers to return bottles so they can be reused and lighten its environmental footprint. Traders Point has also changed its distribution efforts with all dairy products being primarily sold at the company’s farm store, along with some independent grocers.

The restructuring effort was first announced in November, at which time the company said it aimed to provide customers and the community with a more authentic and intimate experience.

      "Problems cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them," is attributed to Einstein over 75 years ago. This still holds true, particularly in challenging communications. Many people address conflict at the level it was created by rehashing and building more evidence for their ‘side’ of an argument. Repeating a position tends to intensify the separation of people.
