EASTLEIGH FARM WAS ESTABLISHED IN THE EARLY 1900’S.
IT STAYED IN THE SAME FAMILY, OPERATING AS A GUERNSEY DAIRY
UNTIL 1981. IN 1981, THE FARM WAS TRANSFERRED TO A LOCAL
BUSINESSMAN WHO OWNED IT UNTIL 1996, OPERATING AS A BEEF
FARM. A DEVELOPER BOUGHT AND OWNED IT FOR SIX YEARS,
CONTINUING TO UTILIZE THE PASTURES TO RAISE BEEF.
SEVEN YEARS AGO, THE PRESENT OWNER BEGAN THE PROCESS OF
RECONVERTING THE FACILITY TO A DAIRY OPERATION.
PRIOR TO NOW, THE MILK PRODUCED WAS SOLD INTO THE FEDERAL
MILK POOL.THE DECISION WAS MADE THAT THE BEST WAY TO SERVE
THE FARM AND POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS WAS TO SELL THE PRODUCTS
ON THE FARM.THUS, THE SWITCH OVER TO THE RETAIL SALE OF RAW
MILK IN THE FALL OF 2009. IN ADDITION TO RAW MILK PRODUCED
ON THE FARM, LOCALLY PRODUCED ICE CREAM, YOGURT, CHEESES,
CHOCOLATE MILK, SEASONAL ITEMS
AND ORGANIC EGGS WILL BE AVAILABLE.
THROUGH ITS MOST RECENT HISTORY, ONLY NATURAL LAND
ENHANCEMENTS HAVE BEEN USED INCLUDING ORGANIC FISH OIL AND
SEAWEED, TO SUPPLEMENT THE GROWING OF GRASS AND HAY USED
AT THE FARM.THE OWNER HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN THE DAIRY
BUSINESS ALL OF HIS LIFE AND HAS NEVER USED PESTICIDES OR
ARTIFICIAL ENHANCEMENTS IN ANY OF THE FARM OPERATIONS.
THE CATTLE ARE PASTURED AND GRASS FED THROUGHOUT MOST OF
THE YEAR.THE OPERATION IS VERY CLOSE TO BEING ORGANIC
WITHOUT BEING CERTIFIED.THE HERD CONSISTS OF MOSTLY
JERSEYS (HIGH IN BUTTER FAT) WITH A FEW GUERNSEYS AND
BROWN SWISS. ALL OF THE CATTLE ARE BORN AND RAISED ON THE
TWO FARMS THAT ARE WITHIN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO EACH OTHER.
