“Ahimsa” farming is the traditional, ancient Indian method of farming. “Ahimsa” means “non-violent”, and so Ahimsa farming does not entail any harm to the animals or land. Some would call it ‘Yoga farming’, or working in natural harmony with the land.
At our Rutland Ahimsa Eco-Dairy, we uphold the principles inherent in this self-sustaining and cow protecting method.
- We never kill a cow
- Our calves suckle from their mothers until weaned
- We primarily milk by hand
- We give our oxen meaningful work
Our farm is small but self-sustaining. Our delicious, vitamin D rich, pure milk is delivered to our customers weekly and we have over 1000 names on our waiting list.
We have one bull in a field whom we allow a cow to spend a few days with if we decide she is ready to be impregnated.
