Holstein Ladies

homestead

Our dairy farm has been in our family for over five generations.

My husband Owen and I live on a 125 acre farm that has been in Owen’s family for over five generations. We are part of the New Jersey Farmland Preservation program for part of our original homestead area. We farm about 120 additional rented acres for corn and hay to sustain our small dairy herd.

We are proud of our “Holstein Ladies.” These big black and white cows (and now we also have some red and whites) are the only dairy cows in our township area.

People love to stop and watch cows at the fence line feeder facility near the road. This field houses our transition cows, some un-bred heifers and bred heifers. We move them back up to the milking facility as they near their time for calving and return to the milking herd.

Enjoy milk products!
