Our buttermilk is 'true' because it is just what buttermilk should be, the brightly flavored, creamy liquid that results from the churning of cultured butter. (Most 'buttermilk' you find at the store is made from skim milk.)
Our traditional, cultured buttermilk is at once creamy, tangy and slightly effervescent. It enhances countless recipes or may be enjoyed alone as a delightful drink. Our buttermilk contains live, active cultures and is rich in highly beneficial probiotics and other nutritious compounds.
We sell our buttermilk through select retail stores in the Northeast. If you live within 50 or so miles of us, and want to buy in bulk directly from the farm, please contact us and we can arrange delivery.
Ricotta is a fresh, sweet cheese that reflects the delicate and complex flavors of the milk it is made from. At our farm, we focus on flavor. We consider many factors to achieve a golden, nutrient- rich milk with subtle hints of sunshine and field. The breed of cows we milk (Guernsey), their all-grass diet, the small size of our creamery and the meticulous cleanliness of our processes all result in delicious ricotta cheese.

Milk Fed Pork
Unlike ruminants, such as cows, goats or sheep, pigs must have more concentrated feed. Virtually all pigs; conventional, organic or pastured are raised primarily on grain.
Not our pigs!
The rich part of our pigs' diet is skimmed milk and whey left over from our creamery. They get the rest of what they need from pasture; eating grass and rooting in the soil. The resulting quality and flavor of the pork is outstanding.
We raise a few beef steers along with our dairy herd. We give them the same respect and care we give our milking cows. Like our cows, they graze in lush mountain pastures in summer and eat only hay harvested from our meadows in winter. Our steers thrive with no grain! The result is tender, 100% grass fed beef that has rich flavors and a slew of beneficial nutritious compounds.
Spend some quality time with Old Friends. Our Old Friends' Tallow Salve is a miracle for skin. We use it on hands, faces, lips, legs, arms, baby butts, even to protect dogs' paws from ice and snow! It has cured eczema and soothed withered, winter-chapped hands around here. We hand-make it ourselves here on the farm, using our own, 100% grass fed tallow as well as all-organic, extra virgin shea butter, coconut oil, and olive oil, plus pure, therapeutic grade lavender, eucalyptus oil and a whole lotta love. Our salve also comes unscented, if you prefer.
