Personal experience and production goals summary:

Dan 5th generation dairy farmer that was raised on his family’s dairy farm.  He has spent my life working with his family on the farm, raising cattle and growing feed.  In 2012 we began leasing a farm and have grown a dairy herd. We have been certified organic grass fed since 2013. We currently sell to a distibutor and our long term goal is to bottle our own milk. Dan works on the farm full time and Anne has off-farm income that will transfer.

Through the years Dan has learned many skills on the farm from animal husbandry to growing crops.  He has also developed a strong passion for organic farming and rotational grazing. 

We look forward to the opportunity to be a part of your agricultural community. We are committed to ensuring that small farms continue to stick around because our future needs them! Not only do we have goals for our farm but we also have goals on engaging in the community and youth in farming for the future.
