Founded in 1997, Mermaid Farm and Dairy is a 35 acre farm run by Allen Healy & Caitlin Jones, along with their two sons, Everett and Kent.
They began simply with tomatoes as their specially; as their family grew, so did production on the farm. In 2002, Allen purchased four milk cows to start a raw milk dairy. Although produce is still a part of their farm stand offerings, they are most known for their cream-line yogurt, lassies, raw milk, and a variety of cheeses. They also offer lamb, whey-fed pork, beef, and eggs.
In addition to the main farm, they also lease additional pastures, hay fields, and a vegetable plot offsite.
Sometimes quirky and unconventional, both Allen and Caitlin take a low impact, resourceful approach to farming.
