Sunny Horizon Dairy
is an Amish, family-owned, raw dairy farm located just outside of beautiful and quaint Farmville, Virginia.
Sam Lapp and his family are originally from the rolling hills of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The Lapp family have been dairy farming for over 15 years and made the transition to organic dairy farming practices over seven years ago.
In 2018, the Lapps made the journey south to Virginia and purchased a farm to continue raw, organic dairy farming practices in Virginia. Sunny Horizon Dairy is situated on 133 acres, which includes pastures both grazing and hay. Sam, his wife Salome and their seven children are all involved in working the farm.
The goal of Sunny Horizon Dairy is to produce the best and most nutritious milk possible. Their cows receive all their nutritional requirements from grazing in the fields, hay in the winter months and natural vitamins and minerals; never grain or antibiotics. Sam believes that it is important to work with nature to improve the soil and environment which is why they do not use pesticides or herbicides on their land. This is why Sunny Horizon Dairy's products are “Pure & Simple.”
Eggs are in supply!
The new ladies are laying and eggs are back in full supply! Place an order today for an extra dozen or two. While you are there we have cheese in stock again too. Our cheese is a little softer than traditional Colby cheese so we decided to rename it Farmstead Cheese. Farmstead Cheese is cheese made on the same farm that the milk is produced on and therefore its flavor is distinct to that farm, based on the region and the grasses the cows graze on without outside influences.
This lesson in cheese was brought to you at no additional charge ;)
