At the foundation of all that they do, the Miller family believes strongly in the importance of preserving agriculture and open space in Connecticut for future generations.
Paul Miller started Fairvue Farm in 1962 with just 7 cows. Today, the Miller family milks 1,400 cows daily and a herd of 3,000 cows total.
To produce high quality milk, the Millers prioritize exceptional cow care. Their cows live in freestall barns with constant access to fresh food and water, and the barns allow them to move freely and rest comfortably. The sides of the barn roll down in the winter to keep the cows warm and protected from the elements, and in the summer their barns have dozens of fans and sprinklers to keep their cows cool and comfortable.
Fairvue Farm is part of the Agri-Mark Co-Op, where they turn milk into award-winning Cabot cheese and other dairy products. Fairvue Farm is also one of six Connecticut farms that formed The Farmer’s Cow, a local brand that processes and markets their own dairy products.
Today, Paul, Diane, and their son David work on the farm together. At the foundation of all that they do, the Miller family believes strongly in the importance of preserving agriculture and open space in Connecticut for future generations. Each year the Millers open their farm to thousands of guests for a tour during Celebrating Agriculture, a local fair that honors all the ways that agriculture enriches community life in the northeastern part of the state.
