Three years ago, Local Farm started breeding it’s standard jerseys to minature jersey bulls, and began working even more with our calves and young stock. They lead well with a halter, stand to have their feet picked up, and are comfortable with a person’s hands around and in their mouths. Local Farm offers them for sale as family cows after freshening. Call (860) 672-0229 or send an email for more information about buying a family cow.
