Our Farm History: We've been raising our own Angus Beef and farm fresh eggs for years. Beth's dream of having a Jersey cow came true in January 2019 when Thomas and Beth decided to get a Jersey milk cow. We found a certified organic dairy that was selling their less productive Jersey cows and added Clarabelle to our farm. What she would eat, her health and happiness, the cleanliness of her milking conditions and the safe handling of the milk were of utmost importance. The fresh, whole milk was fantastic and soon we wanted to share this gift. Not much later we got another certified organic Jersey cow to keep up with the milk demand. We love working with these beautiful animals daily, watching them run across their pasture to us at milking time. It was a natural transition to acquire Wholesome Family Farm in 2019. We merged the Jersey cows and our Angus beef cattle together to provide premium quality food to families.
Now we want everyone to have the opportunity to eat local, Pasture Raised Premium Angus Beef, Raw Jersey Milk, Rainbow Eggs and get the convenience of regular delivery.
