Nestled in the rolling hills of Vermont, our farm’s dairy operation dates back to the mid 1920’s. We, Robert and Linda Dimmick, took over the farm in 1990 from Rob’s parents and transitioned to organic practices shortly afterwards.
Today, our son Bobby and his wife, Brooke, continue the tradition of family farming. The bright red barn and white post-and-beam farmhouse lie in the middle of 210 acres of cropland and grazing fields. The green fields are dotted with Holstein cows and heifers in the warmer months and provide hay for the animals during Vermont’s cold winters. During the early spring steam rises from our sugarhouse where our sons Bobby and Billy boil pure maple syrup. Our little farm, surrounded by a neighborhood of family and friends, symbolizes rural living at its very best.
