Keeping a Family Cow

The Complete Guide for Home-Scale, Holistic Dairy Producers

by Joann S. Grohman

Foreword by Jack Lazor

Praise

Many with small rural properties have opted out of the industrial food system by obtaining a family cow. Keeping a Family Cow is the only owner's manual you will need. In elegant, readable prose, Grohman guides the neophyte through all the steps, from choosing a cow, to milking her, to making butter, yogurt, and cheese. Highly recommended for anyone interested in grass-based farming and nutrient-dense food—not just family cow owners-—Keeping a Family Cow will instill great appreciation for the sacred bond between domesticated animals and the human beings who care for them.

Sally Fallon Morrell, President, The Weston A. Price Foundation


"Joann Grohman is level-headed and sure-footed when it comes to helping families build a lasting partnership with a homestead cow. Her work remains an important reference for anyone considering bringing these gentle creatures into their lives."

Shannon Hayes, Author of Long Way on a Little, The Farmer and the Grill, The Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook, and Radical Homemakers.
