70 North St
Hi, we’re Nevin and Terri, owners of Oake Knoll Farms. A lot has changed since 1732, of course, but here’s something that hasn’t: we still milk heritage cows, produce and drink clean and nutritious raw milk, and raise animals on pasture— just the way they like it, and the way it was always done before industrial agriculture. We combine best management practices with sustainable agriculture to provide the community with high quality milk, cheese and meat from our grass-fed A2 Ayrshire cows. We work hard to ensure our cows are happy, selecting milk cows that have correct structure to live long comfortable lives. The cows graze intensively during the summer, and can choose to eat hay outside or inside during the winter. By supporting us, you help provide a cleaner, safer environment for the future.

Raw milk by species
What is raw milk?
Raw milk comes from cows, goats, sheep, camels, alpacas, or any other mammal. Raw milk has not been subjected to pasteurization, homogenization, high-pressure processing, UV radiation, or any other process meant to alter its composition. Only milked, filtered, cooled, bottled, and sold direct-to-consumer or to the cheese maker.
When you choose raw milk, you are supporting farmers directly - instead of corporate milk processors.
