Stonewall Farm has been a working dairy farm for over 100 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. While milk is not available for sale at the farm, we sell our milk to Organic Valley. 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.

Learn About Our Products & Farming Practices
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.
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 and classes for adults and school children over the next couple of years to our landscape as we implement these practices.
Currently available in our store is our very own cheddar cheese. In a collaboration with Grafton Village Cheese, we are able to age our herd’s raw milk into a cheddar cheese suitable for your table! Gouda cheese made with our raw milk by Sawyer’s Artisanal Cheese and is also available in the farm store! We also carry cheese curds as well.
