Generations of Kindness

Our farm is the home that our cows know their entire lives. They live a life of love, respect and affection. Each of our cows has a name, not a number.

In 1919, our great-great grandfather Everett bought our family's first Jersey bull and heifer, the founding animals of our herd that today is one of the longest established Jersey herds in the country.

Starting on their first day of life, we form bonds with our cows. We feel a great responsibility as their caretakers to make sure that we give them the happiest and healthiest lives possible. Our cows are a matriarchal family of mothers, sisters, aunts, nieces, daughters and grandmothers. It is such a joy to us to see a great old cow grazing alongside generations of her daughters.

VIBs - Very important bovines


Our cows live lives that you can only dream of.

We don't compromise. We give our cows the best life possible.

Cutting corners on our cows' diet, health and environment is not an option for us. This is not a choice that people who want to make the most money possible from their cows decide to do, but it's the choice that we want for our farm.

 

100% All Natural, Grass, grain and hay filled Diet

Our cows graze on acres of our sweet green grass. We also grow our own baleage, traditional dry hay, haylage and corn silage to keep our cows healthy. No rBST or growth hormones ever.

Open-Pasture, 
a Life of Leisure

In the right weather, our cows come inside just for milking. From May to early November, they are free to stay out all night if they please. When they let us know they're ready, we bring them back in. Even in the winter we take our girls out for exercise everyday. 

Each cow has her own personalized stall with her name on it. The stalls each have a mattress bedded with fresh chopped straw every day. We never dock tails, brand or overcrowd our cows.

Home Sweet Home, Best Barn Ever

Why Jersey cows are the best bovines.

Creams Really Do Come True


Why Jersey cows are the best bovines.

Jersey cows do dairy best.

These little brown cows are perfectly suited for dairy farm life in the Catskills.

Jerseys tend to be heartier and live longer than other types of dairy cows.  

These old souls adapt to a wide range of climates. Jerseys are happy to be outside in both the Catskills' balmy summers or chilly winters so they graze our pastures throughout most of the year!

Jerseys have the highest butterfat content in their milk of all the breeds.

This makes Jersey milk the richest, creamiest and most delicious kind of milk you can get. And this makes our butter creamier than you could ever dream of.
