NEOraw has herd shares available from a dairy in Portage County (Cymry Farm, Inc. Don and Adriann Sampson, Deerfield, OH) with a pasture-based mixed herd of Jersey, Holstein, and Ayrshire cows. As the weather permits, the cows are rotationally grazed, with a small amount of supplemental grain given in the barn at milking time. They are fed forages and ensilage (all home grown) to complement the grass season.
Health and cleanliness is a top priority. Herd tested free of brucellosis, tuberculosis, and Johne’s.
$35 buy-in per share (refundable) and $60/month boarding fee. Whole and half shares are available year round.
Visitors to the farm are always welcome with an appointment and they will have designated farm visit days. The farm is a member of Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund.
