Our Jersey Girls
These are the girls. They get to stay out on green pastures all day and are moved to a smaller pasture at night. They are not given any hormones and we do not spray our pasture with herbicides or pesticides. They get to eat when they want and are so spoiled.Each one has a different personality and are a pleasure to be around. They produce anywhere between 2 to 4 gallons a milking, so that is about 4 to 8 gallons a day, we are currently milking 7 and will soon have calves being born.
We use a pre dip teat cleaner to clean our cows and a post dip to keep out bacteria, it is the same as if you go to a dairy barn. We also have a cooling tank which cools the milk to 40 degrees in 20 min which means it is fresher. We use a bucket milker which is cleaned after every milking we try to keep everything as clean as we possibly can. We test our cows for mastitis and they have been blood tested for different diseases.
In the state of Georgia. we have to label our milk for pet consumption because it is raw milk. We hand milk and also use a milker,it really just depends on what we are doing and who we are milking.I make butter,cheese, yogurt and buttermilk with our milk.
You can order milk or ask any questions you want or even come out for a visit.Please call 770-547-4282 or our email is firstname.lastname@example.org
We sell at the Rome Farmers market when it opens in June and are there through Oct. The Herb shop in Rome also carries our milk. We sell in plastic jugs- gallon or half gallon.We also have a few customers who bring glass jars and we fill them. Our milk is 7.00 a gallon.
