About Us & Meet the Cows

m3

         Welcome  !

We occupy two different pieces of land in Dorchester, SC for the purpose of raising and offering small family cows: Miniature Jersey, Miniature Hereford and deliberately , thoughtfully bred Miniature dual-purpose ( Beef / Dairy crosses).

Our primary goal is the global health and well being of our herds.  We believe in meeting the psychological as well as physical needs of our bovines and raise them in humane environment that considers the mental as well as physical requirements for a contented herd.

We believe with conviction that the ability to engage in natural behaviors is crucial to the holistic health of the cow. We do not separate calves from the mother unless absolutely necessary for the health of the dam or calf.  All of our calves are dam raised for at least 5 months , sometimes a longer nursing period is required with the minis until we feel the calf is strong enough to wean.

We do not purchase livestock  from auctions or sales barns. Our sources for incoming livestock are well known and well respected.  We learned the hard way early on that buying from an unknown source is risky and that even farmers can be dishonest in surprising ways.  All of our incoming stock is tested and veterinary checked.   We do not do our own vetting; all exams , treatments, testing and general health checks are done by a licensed farm vet.

We do not place bovines in situations where their needs will not be met in the manner to which they are accustomed here at this farm.  We are looking for homes and families that appreciate our girls and boys for their true selves and where their true natures will be encouraged and valued.  If a proper home is provided for the right family cow, everyone is happy–buyer, cow and seller.
