Faerie Springs Farm is a family operation raising animals and making farmstead cheeses in a sustainable and ethical program which honors the special function and lifestyle of each animal. Suzanne and Kate and Abbie provide a variety of aged artizan and fresh cheeses using our Cow and Goat's milk while providing the honorable humane treatment of our animals. During non-covid times we provide tours and we inform people of all ages where their food begins and how it ends up on their table.
Farming is hard work and messy but it can be rewarding in many ways which is fortunate because the pocket book is not always one of them. We milk Jersey and Holstein Milk cows, Nubian, Saanen, Alpine, and Toggenburg dairy goats. (we milk the dairy cow and goats at 8:00 am and 8:00pm from January to October.),
We also have a variety of chickens, pigs, various rabbits, Katahdin, and Friesian Sheep, and perhaps even kittens.
A farm is its own ecosystem, merging with the surrounding area. Depending upon the recent weather, we may have a sea of mud, a mountain of snow, or just plain dirt and dust but there is usually plenty of poo to go around from the barn yard to the compost pile.
