Barrens View Farm – Dillsburg, PA

Daniel and Lori Baumgardner raise Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World (AGW) dairy cattle at Barrens View Farm in Dillsburg, Pennsylvania.

The Baumgardners manage a mixed herd of 70 Holstein, Jersey, and Ayrshire dairy cows outdoors on pasture. The cows are rotated through the fields, grazing one section of pasture before being moved to fresh fields. This type of management allows grass to recover before cows return to graze again; it also keeps the soil naturally fertilized and minimizes the potential build-up of internal parasites, thereby avoiding reliance on chemical treatments.

“In the past few years, it’s become more and more important to consumers that the practices on dairy farms are viewed as ‘sustainable and humane’,” says Lori. “We are proud to be Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World. Top-notch cow and calf care is nothing new to Barrens View Farm, but it’s nice to have the credentials to prove it.”

Barrens View Farm sells milk to Caputo Brothers Creamery in Spring Grove, which produces cheese with their milk. To contact Barrens View Farm, call 717-432-3169 or email wildcowz@hughes.net.
