Herd History

In March of 1993, only months after Spring Brook Farm was purchased by the Foundation, Biltmore Farms in Asheville, North Carolina donated 20 registered Jersey cows in order to help start the dairy herd. The cows arrived in Reading during an early spring blizzard; hence the first calf born shortly afterwards was named Blizzard. Throughout the years the Farm staff has worked to build upon the genetics of those cows to establish the current herd here at Spring Brook Farm.
