It’s all about the cows.
For over 100 years the Wilde family and their ancestors have owned and operated High Lawn Farm. This Jersey herd, bred for superior milk production, is nationally recognized. Some cows’ families direct lineage can be traced back 15 generations.
Originating on the Isle of Jersey, largest of Great Britain’s Channel Islands, the Jersey cow is highly sought by dairy farmers seeking to improve their herds. Colonel H.G. Wilde and Mrs. Marjorie Field Wilde, the owners of High Lawn Farm(1934-1998), have been recognized for their decades of contribution to the genetic improvement of the breed, receiving “Master Breeder” awards from the American Jersey Cattle Club. Today, the family continues that same dedication to the integrity and quality of the herd’s breeding.
Our High Lawn Farm cows feed off fresh grass in the summer months, and almost all of their winter feed comes straight from our corn and hay fields. We don’t use genetically modified seeds and avoid harmful pesticides. There are never any animal by-products in our feed. This assures that our milk is an all-natural, artificial hormone-free product.
And our cows are milked only twice a day, whereas other farms may milk their cows as many as four times a day. Because we take such a good care of our herd, our cows have a life expectancy that is twice that of many other dairy farms. As we like to put it, we have Jersey Cows, not milk machines. And perhaps we are prejudiced, but we believe the Jersey cow has the most beautiful, doe-like face of the entire bovine kingdom.
