A family-owned dairy farm for 150 years, Steady Lane Farm had not been farmed successfully for about a decade. When we became owners in 2002, fences, barns and water supply were in disrepair and pastures and hayfields were poor from disuse.  We were taken with this expansive south-oriented valley, its fresh water spring and the promise of resilient soils from long history of mowing and pastorage. Today, we see great results from careful pasture farming and hay management in the robust health of our herds.
