Earl Ransom grew up milking cows on this 600-acre farm in Strafford. He and his wife, Amy Huyffer, carry on his family's tradition of managing the land organically, without herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilizers. The herd of 50 mostly-Guernsey cows graze on rotational pastures for the entire growing season. Everything that's done, from the crops they grow for the cows, to the gentle routines of milking, is focused on the comfort and well-being of the herd - so the girls create super-tasty milk and cream. Earl and Amy process their milk into reusable glass bottles, using HTST (High Temperature, Short Time) pasteurization which they feel best preserves the flavor and texture of the milk.
Farmers & Producers
Our partnering Farmers and Producers are some of the best in New England. Most are organically certified, and those who are not use sustainable practices. They are in this for the love of food, farming, and the art and craft of it all. Get them into a conversation about their crops or animals, their soil practices, or their land and be prepared for a lengthy and passionate discourse. They are masters of their craft and are all very excited about the nearly direct relationship they have with you. All of them feel it is essential that families know the people who produce their food. They are fully committed to the well being and health of your family.
The entire Farmers To You team is committed to long term partnerships between Farmers and Families where careful stewardship and sustainability produce great bounty, nutrition and superior taste.
