The GrassWay dairy farm is on a winding country road near New Holstein, WI. T For over 20 years, this is where people have come to see happy animals, outside in their natural environment. Sunshine, fresh air, exercise and nutrient-dense soils are our basis for healthy, happy animals right here in Wisconsin. The beef, chicken, turkey and eggs, along with other organic foods, are available in an on-farm store. Because of zoning issues, a small membership fee is required.
Stop in to chat for awhile, show the kids the new calves and free range chickens. There are baby lambs in the spring now too! They’ll talk for hours about what they’ve experienced here, without the video games. We can’t wait to meet you and show you how an organic family farm operates, using permanent managed pastures and organic materials to create a healthy environment. This is the way farming needs to be.
We are now up to 61 baby calves! The weather is a bit cold and erratic (didn’t I say that last time?), but everyone is doing well. We keep their sheds bedded well and a dry calf is a happy calf.
The ewes have started lambing and it’s starting to get chaotic in the shed. We still haven’t decided on what we are actually going to do with these sheep. The potential plan was to milk them and have sheep cheese made. It’s looking like it won’t happen until next year.
We’ve had 61 cows calve already (it’s April 16th), so we have been putting new milk into the tank. Milk members, please bring your jars when you visit us. We’re finally back to putting milk into the big tank. The milk truck from Westby has been picking up the extra milk in the evening (every other day). So this means that there is milk in the tank all day, every day that we are open. There is no need for a schedule.
Our normal store hours are 9:00 to 5:00: Monday, and Wednesday through Saturday. We are back to our normal schedule of being closed on Tuesdays and Sundays.
