Here at Dogwood Lane, we have been milking cows since 1928. John Christian started with Guernsey cows, and we still maintain the descendants of that herd today. We are a small 100% registered Guernsey herd maintained by our family. Our Guernsey’s have sheds and added bedding, for their comfort, as they are pasture kept 24/7. Often they are out enjoying the sun and cool breezes as they graze our pastures. During the winter when seasonal grass is dormant, we feed a range of different hay, silage and supplement with grain. All home grown.
We have recently started to direct market our milk. Guernsey milk has so many added benefits that aren’t found in conventional milk. Guernsey’s are known for their A2A2 milk. We are pushing to be certified 100% by September sometime.
Currently we have 7 varieties of cheese, and butter available. We hope to have ice cream later this fall. We also ship. Shipping prices can get expensive since raw aged cheese is perishable. There is a window in which the cheese can be shipped with dry ice or cold packs before it expire.
Check out our “Shop our Store” page for our products. We also have a variety of handmade crafts and artwork available for that someone special. All crafts are made here on the farm, from local materials. Enjoy looking over them.
We have a blog page as well. It’s a great way to keep up with things happening here on the farm. I am trying to add regularly, but some days go by way to fast and our animals always come first.
