How Do Our Cows Overwinter?


During the warmer months, and even well into the fall, the farmers of Camphill Village walk our dairy herd to fresh pasture where they stay until the next round of milking. But in the winter, conditions aren’t so favorable here in the northeast, so our cows are kept warm and dry in our loose housing area, which is attached to our barn. The loose housing is a semi-open environment that encouraged good air flow, invites in the sunlight that stays on our hillside through the morning, and is an ideal and safe environment for our baby calves when they arrive in late winter.
