About our Dairy Cows
Towards the end of the year in 2008 Joseph Cunningham started a small dairy operation. He wanted fresh, healthy milk for his family and the local community. We have a small herd of Jersey and Jersey Cross breeds that we milk once a day. Our cows are on pasture 24 hours a day, and only fed when we bring them in to milk. They are fed an all natural feed. Consisting of Alfalfa molasses Kelp Meal, and dairy Nutribalancer. They are hormone free and antibiotic free. The only time we would ever give any medication is to save the life of a cow in extreme situations.
We have a Jersey Bull on farm that our cows are bred back to, and they are dried off two months before they are due to freshen. The calves are left on the mama cow for as long as possible to give them the best start in life.
We believe that with a product like this, quality and safety are our number one priority. We have a 150 gallon chill tank that the milk is poured into and quickly chilled to under 40 degrees. Then it is poured into plastic containers. We sell the milk here at the farm under the Georgia law that requires us to label it as PET MILK, by weekly reservations, and also at some of the farmers markets we go to during the spring and summer. We truly enjoy what we are doing and hope you do as well.
