Sweet Grass Dairy is located about 40 miles north of Columbus, Ohio. Our love for farming was God given from a young age. We started farming at this location the spring of 2013. Our desire is to teach our children to farm responsibly and provide you with nutritious fresh food.
The center piece of our operation is our OEFFA organic-certified dairy herd. Herd shares are available after an interview and farm tour. We have other enterprises that revolve around the dairy such as grass-based broilers in the summer time and fresh eggs from laying hens that follow the cows. Grass-finished beef is also coming available here on the farm in the near future.
Our dairy herd is a mix of breeds. We have been using A2A2 breeding, so the herd is producing a lot of A2A2 milk now, but not 100%. The dairy herd is grass based, with at least 97% of their ration coming from the pastures. At times we balance the cows’ energy needs with a small amount of grain (no soy products) and molasses (under five pounds). We do this to maintain the cows’ energy needs, so as not to sacrifice their health when the grass is not supplying enough energy.
We strive to grow as nutrient dense foods as possible for your family. Please contact us if we can help fill your family’s food needs.
