Maxine! Our Jersey cow, Melba, gave birth to this beautiful Jersey/ Guernsey heifer three weeks ago. Look how fast she's grown! She's currently adjusting her tummy from a mostly milk diet to milk and grass, and is an absolute hoot to watch. Stop by the farm and give her a scratch on the chin
With our new calf comes lots and lots of fresh milk, which is available in the farm store, for $5/ half gallon plus $2 jar deposit. Milk shares can be purchased for 4, 12 or 24 weeks for a discount. Want to learn more about processing raw milk into butter and cheese? We'll be teaching a processing class through Rural Vermont in June- more on dates and class size limits later.
We're looking forward to the arrival of a few more critters on the farm in the next weeks- our pigs will be here soon, and with them the fun of piggy belly rubs and mud wallows. Pork shares are still available, so drop us an email or call if you're interested!
