Find Real Raw Milk at Huckins Farm

A visit to Huckins Farm in New Hampton feels like stepping back In time.

Located on more than 200 acres of lush, rolling countryside, it has been a working farm since 1784, and has been owned and operated by the Huckins family since 1906. Matty Huckins manages the farm with the help of the family.

What sets Huckins Grade A Dairy Farm apart from other dairy farms is that they produce real (raw) milk, from which they make yogurt and cheese. Raw milk is unpasteurized and, when produced in such a highly sanitized environment, has a delicious flavor. It contains higher levels of valuable probiotics and enzymes, which are lost when milk is pasteurized. The farm vigorously abides by state sanitation levels and inspections.

The nine cows, Jerseys and Guernseys, are grass-fed six months of the year and live in a spacious stall-free barn. The milk house and parlor are attached, and located near the entrance is a refrigerator containing the products for sale. It’s on a self-serve honor system, with a basket to collect the money and make change.

Along with the milk, Huckins Farm produces yogurt for sale in quarts ($5) and pints ($2.50), plain and maple flavors.

There are cheeses as well, including a flavor of the month (roasted garlic, mixed herb and dill, to name a few) or the base cheese for the flavors, called “Simplicity,” all are spreadable. An aged cheese (60 days), Giuntini, is a best-seller. Cheese-maker Cassi O’Hern has been working to make flavored mozzarella cheese, and there will be a greater variety of cheeses as she perfects her skills.

 Once you have tasted “real milk,” as well as yogurt and cheese made from it, you want more. With no additives and no preservatives, real milk products contain a wealth of healthy properties and taste so delicious.

The Huckins family invites you to come and visit the farm, especially during evening chores (5 p.m.-8 p.m.) Monday through Friday or make an appointment for a tour of the farm on Sunday afternoon to meet the cows, calves and a variety of farm animals.
