Welcome to Cherry Grove Farm

Come see us milk cows every day at 5pm…bring the whole family!!!

Cherry Grove’s mission is to be a sustainable farm. We believe true sustainability has four components.  The land, the animals, the community and the economics…

  • The Land must be farmed using methods that mimic the systems in nature
  • The Animals must be cared for humanely and kept in numbers that the available land can support
  • The Community We must make sure that our farming practices do not adversely affect our neighbors or our employees. And that our farm is an asset to all.
  • The Economics Our products and services must not only improve the quality of life of our customers but they must be profitable in order to sustain the farm as it grows.

Adherence to these four components ultimately insures that Cherry Grove Farm leaves its place on earth and those surrounding us better than we found them.
