YES, we have raw milk!  Call us or email: 802-234-5524 ....

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, allows us to connect with our cows on a more personal level, and we can closely monitor the health or our cows and quality of their milk on a daily basis.

Our milk cows (one is a Jersey, the other is a Scandanavian Red/Jersey cross) are fed high quality forage (winter ration) or pasture, a few pounds of grain, free choice kelp, salt, and minerals. During the grazing season the cows rotate through an intensively managed grazing system, staying on pasture until at least mid November (most years). When it is time to milk our cows, we travel to them, milking 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 for our own consumption and feed the skim milk, whey, and buttermilk to our pigs and poultry. We offer a Cheese, Butter & Yogurt Making Class a few times a year for those interested in learning how to do this on a home scale.

When purchasing raw milk from us, pick up at the farm and an initial farm tour is required. Call us at 802-234-5524 or email to make arrangements.
