butterworksfarmcows

Featured Producer: Butterworks Farm, Westfield, VT

Butterworks Farm is owned by Jack and Anne Lazor and their family. The 400 acre farm is located in the Northeast Kingdom. Butterworks Farms has 45 Jersey cows, who are born and raised on the farm, without hormones or antibiotics, and eat a wholesome diet of pasture grass and farm-grown grain and hay. Their 100% grass fed, certified organic milk is used to produce super-nutritious yogurt, kefir, buttermilk, heavy cream, and cheese. This week, our Omnivore and Localvore Packages include their rich, delicious yogurt! 

Jack and Anne have also been growing diverse grain and hay crops since 1977, and are well-known for their innovative approach to growing grain in Vermont's tough climate. They are grow oats, corn, wheat, barley, peas, spelt, rye, flax, sunflowers, soy beans, and dry beans in rotation, to feed both people and their cows. They also grow timothy hay, alfalfa, brome, fescue, orchard grass, and clovers to provide a rich, varied diet for their cows.
