Dairy Calves Arrive!

We are excited to add three Jersey calves to our small dairy herd and look forward to having raw  cow's milk and cheeses in future.  Olive, Betsy, and Mable will be grazing in the newly seeded pastures behind the barn and will be bred next spring and calf in 2014.  They come from White Orchard Farm in Frankfort.   White Orchard produces high quality Certified Organic Milk from their grass-fed Jersey herd.  Not only will the calves be adjusting to rhythms of the farm they will be adding much needed manure to our pastures.  Please come visit them and let us know what products you would be interested in as we experiment with cow's milk and look to expand into making yogurt, butter, soft and hard cheeses.
