Congratulations to Jackson and Josephine County voters for passing 15-119, protecting family farms from GMO contamination!
Windy Acres Dairy Farm was purchased in 1994 as a hobby farm. We turned it into a operational Grade A dairy in 2003 and milked our first cows in the parlor Oct. 31st. We started with 44 cows. By 2005 we were up to 60 head in the parlor and 20 heifers being raised to come into the parlor at some point. Because the cost and work was outweighing the income we sold the bulk of the herd in June, 2005. The farm started raising calves and milking only 7 cows. We are currently raising turkeys, pigs, lamb and calves for the food chain of natural meat as well as chickens for meat and eggs. Seasonally we have blueberries and honey available.
