A Look Inside Our Freestall Barn
Our cows are housed in freestall barns. They are called “freestall” barns because the cows are free to do as they please. They can walk from stall to stall, rest, eat and drink whenever they want.
Our cows always have access to food and clean water.

When our cows want to rest, they can lay on the sand beds we have for them. The sand is so soft it’s like lying on the beach!
