The Cows

The Cows are 100% grass-fed. They graze from May through October and move to a new piece of grass every day. During the winter they happily consume hay in the barn while the wind whistles and the snow falls outside. All of the cows and young stock have access to free choice salt and other minerals. We have Jersey cows as we believe they produce high quality raw milk. In addition the utmost attention is given to ensure good health, comfortable housing, and clean milk handling.

The Veal calves are fed lots of  real milk from the cows twice a day. They are also given fresh hay, water and sun every day. With all this great food and attention our Jersey bull calves make superb rose veal.

The Beefers are started with the same care and attention as the veal calves. Once they no longer need milk they are rotationally grazed and fed hay in the winter months. Some of our beef is pure Jersey and some are beef breed crosses, such as Angus and Hereford. During the grazing season our beefers are regularly moved to a fresh piece of pasture just like the milk cows. We finish most of our beef in the late summer and early fall for optimum meat flavor and quality.
