Since 1772 The Stearns Family Farm In Storrs, Connecticut

The Stearns Family Farm, Mountain Dairy has been around since 1772 in Storrs, Connecticut and it’s into its tenth generation. It was initially a mulberry farm for the silk industry. In 1871, the dairy cows came in and the family went into the dairy business. It has survived the Great Depression, three barn fires and whatever mother nature has thrown at it. Today it continues to thrive, and the family has just purchased a farm in nearby Canterbury after its owners retired. They plan to start into the cheese business with the new property. There aren’t a lot of dairy farms left in the state, the Stearns family, after much hard work continues to grow and has total control of everything that happens on the farm, including the raising of all of the cows.
