Green Mountain Dairy Farm

“I’d like people to know that the product you’re getting is top quality,” says Bill.

Bill Rowell’s family began farming in the United States in 1637. Today, he continues that tradition on Green Mountain Dairy Farm in Sheldon, Vermont where he and his family work every day of the year to produce wholesome and nutritious milk.

“I’d like people to know that the product you’re getting is top quality,” says Bill.

The farm milks about 1,000 cows and cares for approximately 1,500 tillable acres in the four towns of Sheldon, Highgate, Swanton and St. Albans.

The family has hosted over 30,000 visitors from all over the world. In 2016, they welcomed over 1,000 people to their farm in one day for Vermont Breakfast on the Farm in partnership with New England Dairy and the agricultural business community. Green Mountain Dairy was also named Vermont Dairy Farm of the Year in 2008.

Many Vermont business owners recognize the need for renewable energy, including dairy farmers. Since 2007, the dairy farm has used an on-site methane digester to produce the farm’s power needs and additional power for the neighboring community.
