Here at Dogwood Lane, we have been milking cows since the 1920’s. 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. Our goal is to be certified 100% by the end of the year sometime. We are currently at about 95% A2A2. You can find out more about the Guernsey cow, their golden milk and A2A2 at usguernsey.com
Currently we have 7 varieties of cheese, and butter available. 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 expires.
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. Do you visit the Kent Island Farmers Market. Its every Thursday starting at 3:30 pm and at 3:00 for Sr.’s. You can pre order from our site and pick it up from our Dogwood Lane Dairy booth at the market. We also Have a store front in Chestertown Maryland. The Guernsey Depot is located at 819B High Street, Chestertown Md. 21678. The Guernsey Depot has all our cheeses, butters and all current cuts of beef. The Guernsey Depot also has other local foods from our local farmers.
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.
