Doing what we can to make this bit of earth a better place.

 

Making sure our animals are healthy and content, caring for and enriching our soil, working to build diverse and productive pastures. These are not just ideas, they are firmly connected practices. They are the foundation of our farm. We are Dan and Laurie Brooks, owners and operators of Wayward Goose Farm in West Pawlet, Vt.

  Spring. The goodness of this corner of the planet, and all its abundance at this time of year, is what cows are made for. That sumptuous, green bounty translates directly into the most incredible, protein rich, creamy milk, brimming with all the biodiversity our pastures have to offer. Our intensively rotationally grazed pasture management system ensures that our pastures have adequate recovery time between grazing sessions, lessening stress and plant die off. This is good for the cows, good for the grass and good for the soil.
