    Our favorite moments from 2018

    So many great things happened last year!  Here are just a few.

    Mama cow, Lava, adopted and nursed an orphan lamb.  Their special bond was inspirational to us all.

    In addition to being 100% grassfed, we proudly achieved fluid milk that is exclusively A2-A2, the highest and healthiest form of milk.  We continue to breed the A1 gene out of our dairy cattle so that soon, all dairy products from Jako Farm will be A2-A2.

    We worked at diversifying the pastures, and scattered over 60 new varieties of wildflowers, forbes, and beneficial pollinators in the pasture.

    Daniel began making compost and compost tea to improve soil health.

    On a whim, we tried making cheese curds, and you couldn’t get enough!  We could hardly make them fast enough.  This will definitely be one “whim” we repeat in 2019.

    We experienced a huge flood, and watched in amazement at the resilience of our pastures.  Healthy soil can indeed handle stress better than unhealthy soil.

    We began a collaboration with Simple Abundance Farm to bring you organically-grown and ethically-raised greens and veggies.  We absolutely love this!

    Soy-free eggs made a big splash in 2018, and they are now our most popular eggs.

    We harvested a bumper crop of Jako Farm honey, which made us over-the-moon happy.

    Here’s to an equally great 2019! We’ve got some new things up our sleeve for the new year… we’ll share them shortly!
