The Larson Farm & Creamery
Larson Farm has over 300 acres of hay fields, pasture and woods, one mile south of the small village of Wells, Vermont. Larson Farm has been in business since June 1976 when we operated as a conventional dairy farm. Cynthia and Rich received production and milk quality awards and were named Outstanding Young Farmers of the Year in 1985. The herd peaked at 150 milkers, but due to declining milk prices and shrinking profit margins, the conventional dairy operation was closed in 1993. The farm has since operated on a much smaller scale.
In 2007 the dairy was reactivated with four Jersey cows, selling ‘raw’ unpasteurized milk to friends and neighbors who appreciate the flavor and nutritional benefits of genuinely fresh milk. As demand for quality products increased, we added to the dairy herd and invested in soil improvement, became USDA-certified Organic, and are 100% Grass-Fed. Our farm store is open daily, offering raw milk, grass-fed beef, and our pasteurized creamery products. We now are part of a raw milk CSA, and our yogurts, gelato, butter, and pasteurized ‘cream-top’ milk is sold in area country stores and natural food markets.
Rich and Cynthia are fully dedicated to making our delicious and nutritious unpasteurized raw milk, which contains natural enzymes and is therefore easier to digest, available to our customers. Furthermore, we’ve bred our cows to produce milk with A2 beta caseins, further enhancing digestibility.
