Sandy River Farms is proud of its legacy of raising excellent nationally recognized Milking Shorthorn under the tutelage of Brenda York who brought the first Shorthorns to the farm in 1963 from her childhood farm, Voter Hills Farm also in Farmington. With the addition of registered Holsteins, the farm has a herd of 80 milk cows with another 65 head of young stock. They sell bull calves when available, mostly in the late spring and summer. Call the farm for the availability of steer calves.
Sandy River Farms also bottles and sells organic unprocessed milk at the farm which can be purchased anytime by stopping by the farm. The cooler in the milkhouse is always stocked with gallons of whole and skim milk at the cost of $5.00 per gallon. Fresh eggs are also available for $2.50 a dozen.
