From the Farmer

Engelbert Farms, LLC is a certified organic dairy farm in Nichols, NY. The Engelbert family has been farming in the southern tier of New York since 1848 and in Nichols since 1911. Our sons represent the 5th generation farming in Nichols. We started farming organically in 1981 and became certified in 1984 – the first certified organic dairy farm in the US! No chemicals are used on our land, and no antibiotics or hormones on our animals. Our dairy cows spend their days happily munching certified organic pasture during the grazing season and organic forages and a small amount of organic grain in the non-grazing season. We raise all of our own organic feed, so we know that our cows are eating the highest quality organic feed available.
