Farm Fresh Organic Raw Milk
Living off-grid, we try to use human and animal power as much as we can, which is why we love the fact that the cows can harvest their own feed 7 months out of the year. We milk our cows by hand, which supports our efforts in conserving energy and resources.
Our Jersey cows are fed high quality forage or pasture, a few pounds of grain, free choice kelp, salt, and minerals. During the grazing season the cows are fed high quality pasture in a Management Intensive Grazing system and stay on pasture until mid November.
By hand milking our cows, we feel we are able to closely monitor the quality of the milk and the health of our cows. This also means that when it is time to milk our cows during the grazing season, we go to them and milk them in the field where they are grazing. Our cows are very friendly and enjoy the fact that they don't have to be interrupted (at least not for long) from their grazing routine.
With our certified organic raw milk, we make yogurt, cheese, butter (and teach classes on how to do this) and feed the skim milk, whey, and buttermilk to our pigs and poultry.
We also sell raw milk and welcome more customers. Pick up at the farm is required. Call us at 802-234-5524 or email Lmccrory560@gmail.com to make arrangements.
