Raw Milk Dairy
Last updated : 12/18/12
Baum Farm operates a small raw milk dairy to supply farm fresh Jersey milk to our customers. Vermont laws allows us to sell the raw milk directly from the farm to you. The milk from our cows is nutritious, unprocessed, and naturally Probionic. The quality of the milk, the health of the cows, pleasurable service to our customers and a profit for the farm is the objective of our dairy. We bottle our milk in 1/2 gallon Mason jars ready for your pickup. The milk cost is $4.00 per half gallon. There is a $2.00 deposit for the Mason jar. When you come again you just return the old jar and just pay for the milk. Come by the farm see the cows and pick up some great milk.
We presently have a herd of 12 registered Jersey cows. The herd consist of 6 cows Holly, Rhubarb, Elsie, Ruby, Pansy, Diamond and Peaches and 2 heifers Rassberry and Rose. We are presently milking 3 cows Holly, Pansy and Rhubarb. We trying to have a least 2 or 3 cows milking year round. This allow the cows that we were milked to have a long vacation before they start milking again. We now have a steady milk customers base but are looking for more as we increase our the milk production.
We welcome farm tours to see our cows and the farm. During the farm tour we should you our facilities but most important is to show you the cows. We like to talk about how we take care of our cows. We show you our milking facility and how we milk the cows. We are open to any questions about the cows and our facility. It is great learning experience for adults and children. During the summer months the cow are nearly alway outside we can walk up to them and show you them in thier natural environment which is grazing outside.
Stop in and visit with the cows and see our farm.
