ORGANIC DAIRY

Stonewall Farm has been a working dairy farm for over 125 years. Our dairy operation is certified organic. The herd is a mix of about 30 Holsteins and Brown Swiss Cows. It is the only working dairy farm in the Keene, NH and is open to the public year-round. The public is invited to watch our daily milkings at 4:30 AM and 4:30 PM. Stonewall Farm has won awards for the high quality of its milk.  We also provide Joe Sawyer of Sawyer’s Artisanal Cheese with the milk he uses to make his cheese products. We do make cheese and yogurt that is for sale in our farm store and at the Monadnock Food Co-op. Starting in August 2017, we will be selling raw milk at the farm again!

Learn About Our Products & Farming Practices

To help us achieve our vision of healthy land, healthy people and healthy communities, Stonewall Farm uses regenerative agriculture practices in both our dairy and crop production. Regenerative agriculture describes farming and grazing practices that, among other benefits, reverse climate change by rebuilding soil or organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity – resulting in both carbon drawdown and improving waterways.

Our practices include converting to no-till vegetable farming, rotational grazing practices and bio-conservation controls to create habitat for pollinators and beneficial insects. Stonewall Farm is an organic dairy farm. As part of the requirements of organic dairy farming, cows must be allowed to graze pasture for a certain percentage of the year. We are in the process of obtaining our organic certification for our crops as well.

In the spring of 2016 we started implementing a variety of new conservation practices that will create habitat for pollinators and beneficial insects. Practices include cover crop cocktails, insectary strips, beetle banks, hedgerow plantings, permanent conservation plantings, and no-till practices. We do not use any chemicals or pesticides in our crop production. These practices, will improve the health of our soil increasing our yields and producing more nutritious food while alleviating weed pressure. Watch for changes to our landscape and classes for adults and school children over the next couple of years as we implement these practices.
