Our farm is named
after St. Brigid, the patron saint of dairymaids and
scholars who was renowned for her compassion and often
featured with cows at her feet. She perfectly represents the
pairing of Judy, the dairymaid and Bob, the scholar.
established St. Brigid’s Farm in 1996, we started with 69
registered Jersey heifers. Our herd has grown to 160 head
consisting of milking cows, replacement heifers, steers and
veal calves. Every year we sell surplus dairy cows as well
as Jersey beef and veal.
The 55 acre farm,
located on the scenic eastern shore of Maryland, is planted
in permanent pasture, comprised predominantly of perennial
rye grass and clover. The seasonally calved herd
intensively grazes from April through November.
Milk from our
outstanding Jerseys is marketed through our cooperative,
Land O’ Lakes. Cows average sixty pounds of milk per day.
St. Brigid’s Farm is ranked 24th in the nation on
the Jersey Production Index list.
Grass fed Jersey
beef and veal is sold directly to individuals and
restaurants to offer consumers a delicious and healthy
alternative to the options at the supermarket. It thrills
us to have our Jersey beef offered on the menu of our
favorite local restaurant,
Brooks Tavern, and to have local residents stop by to
purchase steaks, roasts, burger or chops for their next
cookout or family dinner.
The pairing of a
dairymaid and scholar has resulted in a beautiful farm which
produces high quality milk, beef, veal and dairy stock.
