Our Vision At Larson Farm
At Larson Farm, we share a vision of healthy communities, healthy people and a sustainable food system build on good stewardship of our natural resources. The land, cattle and dairy products are certified organic. The cattle are certified 100% grass-fed, and our dairy cows are 100% A2A2. Healthy soils mean healthy cattle who produce nutrient-rich foods free of artificial chemicals and pesticides.
Our vision is to provide fresh nutritious dairy products to local and regional markets while being good stewards of the land and caring for our sweet Jersey dairy cows.
In1975 there were no opportunities in Connecticut for a young couple to start dairy farming, so Rich and Cynthia Larson came to Vermont, dreaming of owning a farm. Three years later, they made it happen, purchasing the farm in Wells. We farmed conventionally back then, but changed as we realized the problems with that model. We now farm organically without chemical fertilizer and pesticides. Nature has rewarded us with productive pastures and healthy happy cows.
Mercy, our daughter, now manages the dairy herd. Cynthia and niece Kristin manage the horse retirement boarding and pony breeding program. Sister-in-law Lee is the creamery manager.
