The Family Cow

Farm established in 1910 – 122 acres
Our commitment to 100% Certified Organic means that we are dedicated to environmentally sustainable production practices. It means that we never apply synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers to our pastures or crops. The cows are never subjected to synthetic hormones, genetically modified organisms, or antibiotics. Our gentle Jerseys freely graze on natural grasses, the way cows are meant to eat. The result is super happy cows giving super healthy milk! Jersey cows give milk that is much creamier and with higher protein, mineral, and vitamin content than milk from more common breeds.
Raw milk is not processed in any way. It’s beyond organic, it’s truly whole food alive with natural enzymes, immunity building probiotic bacteria, and practically bursting with full bodied flavor. Raw milk still contains the natural enzyme lactase, which is necessary for the digestion of lactose.
