Raw Milk Regulations
Vermont's tiered raw milk policy allows producers selling 50 quarts or less per week to sell, barter, or give away milk on the farm where it is produced, and may also allow customers to fill their own containers.
Producers selling up to 160 quarts per week may also sell, barter, or give away milk on the farm where it is produced but may also deliver milk if it is pre-sold and if they follow the additional requirements for Tier 2 producers. A farmer selling less than 50 quarts may also deliver pre-sold milk given they meet the Tier 2 requirements.
Raw milk sales are prohibited at farmers markets, but advertising is not restricted. Producers of more than 12.5 gallons/day must meet bacteriological standards (Bacterial counts must be below 15K/mL and coliform counts below 10/mL). All raw milk must be clearly labeled as raw and carry the required warning label.

They have a herd of 12 jersey cows, milking 2-3 at any one time to supply farm fresh, nutritious, unprocessed, and naturally probiotic milk year round, and are Animal Welfare Approved. The quality of the milk, the health of the cows, pleasurable service to their customers and a profit for the farm is the objective of the dairy. The cows are provided with the best green grass and dry hay, with a small amount of grain. They bottle their milk in 1/2 gallon mason jars ready for pickup for $4.00 each. There is a $2.00 deposit for the returnable Mason jar. Farm tours to see their cows are welcome.

We sell raw milk from a small herd of Jersey cows directly from our Farm Store. Our cows eat 100% grass and are managed organically. Our milk is rich and creamy. In our farm store we also sell our own grass-fed beef, pastured pork, veggies year round, and our Traditional German bread baked in our wood-fired oven.
We are a grass-based dairy. We rotationally graze in the grazing season and feed dry hay in the winter with minimal supplemental grain. We practice organically although we are not certified.

The goats are the heart and soul of our farm. Their health and well-being the highest priority. They are rotationally grazed during the pasture months on thirty acres of neighboring green pastures; they are also fed high quality grain and hay to supplement their diet.
We are Vermont’s only tier two raw goat milk producer and we won the the VT Dairy Industry Association highest quality award in 2009+2011. We are a small farm dedicated to the highest quality raw milk and proudly display our test results. Our raw milk is tested twice a month by the state lab and samples are frozen daily to ensure the highest quality raw milk. Milk can be purchased at our farm or we can deliver the milk to your home since we are a tier two producer.

Fresh raw milk is available at the farm seven days a week.
