When people think of a farm they often have images in their mind of what they will find. Often we are asked, "Do you have any animals on the farm?" Well now we can say, "Yes!" When you come out to the farm you will likely be greeted by the two newest members of our farm family Lily and May.


Each year we participate in several events in our community, which we need help with. Help is needed to set up and tear down the booth as well as manning the booth. This will be done in 2 hour blocks of time and we will take 2 people per block. This will count towards your hours required for the farm. What we need is people who will talk with those who come into the booth and give out information.

Milk Truck

Here's a quick run down of the dairy operation.

The cycle I am shooting for is seasonal and is usually geared towards having a cow in milk when the grass is growing vigorously. Another factor is that it is harder on a cow to be in milk with the heat of summer, so there are opposing advantages as to when you keep your cows in milk in Florida.

A heifer can be impregnated for the first time as early as 15 months. The gestation is 9 months so a cow would start producing milk at 24 months at the earliest.
