Welcome to our farm site!

We have milk! Come find us at the North Asheville Tailgate market on Saturday mornings from 8 a.m. to noon and the West Asheville Tailgate Market on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 6:30 in the afternoon. 

The grass has been growing great this year. I hope this rain continues.

We have 2 cows in milk currently. Mayonnaise (see picture above) and Wallace freshened this spring. Three more calves on the way- spread out over the summer. So we are back at it, milking and herding cows.

We are a grass-fed dairy in Madison County, North Carolina. We are adjacent to the French Broad River, just a few miles upriver from downtown Marshall. Since 2009, we have provided raw Jersey cow milk to the Asheville and Marshall areas. You can find us again at the farmers markets this year. 

We are excited about this new year. We have been awarded the AgOptions Grant for 2017! We are very honored to receive this support. We will be upgrading our milking parlor by purchasing a much needed bulk tank and a large double sink for washing milking equipment. We also will install washable wall panels and new lights. Our ultimate goal is to become cheese makers. This grant project is one big step in that direction. It helps us to bring the milk parlor up to Grade B standards. I hope to update the website with the progress this spring.
