Raw milk available year round. Cows are machine milked. The milk is tested, double filtered (while milking and again for storage), and bottled/tank refrigerated immediately after milking. You may visit the farm to watch the process if you like. Cows are not given antibiotics or hormones. Most of the milk is A2/A2 and the farm is working toward 100% A2/A2.
The farm is a past commercial dairy with a commercial refrigerated tank. Thus they can also offer bulk quantities with appropriate containers and prior notice. When they have surplus milk and by giving them ample warning, you may be able to indulge in adventures in making cheese, ice cream, butter, and/or yogurt. Or become a weekly/bi-weekly or monthly customer via subscription (preferred) for reserved milk. Milk is sold in your supplied container (the farm does try to keep jars on hand for sale), then switched out (after thorough cleaning), then returned with your name on it.
Current prices are $7/gallon or $3.50/half-gallon for cow's milk. Quantity discount available for cheesemaking or milk projects (with provided food-safe 5-gallon bucket).

Jersey cows, mostly grassfed, although freshly milled soy-free feed and alfalfa is given at milking. Cows are disease tested and milk is periodically tested to maintain the highest quality. Milk is obtained after brushing each cow, double washing and drying the cow's teats, discarding the first few ounces of milk, and then collected through a closed vacuum system. After milking, cow's teats are treated with a moisturizing, sanitizing dip before they are let out to forage. Milk is brought into a milk room and then it is strained through a clean disposable milk filter, bottled into plastic food- grade bottles, capped, dated, and submerged in a below freezing quick-chiller until it has reached an optimal temperature. All equipment is sanitized promptly with dairy sanitizer solution and hung to air dry. Milk is sold in gallons for $12 and half gallons for $6. Text or call Sarah for more details and availability.

This small dairy sells sheep's milk for $4 per quart. Message them for address and amount of milk wanted. They have a very small dairy and can't handle many customers.
Farmer's statement on sheep's milk: "Sheep's milk is more acceptable to the human digestive system in comparison to cow’s and goat’s milk. Sheep's milk does not have such a strong smell or taste as is often the case with goat’s milk. Sheep's milk contains about double and in some cases much more than double the amount of solids found in either goat’s and cow’s milk. Sheep's milk is superior and belongs to a class of its own."
