What makes our milk so special?
The goats are able to access pasture year around and during winter months they are given shelter from the elements and have access to fresh air and space to roam if desired. The goats come inside to be milked twice daily and are fed a whole grain treat when they are in the parlour. They are then free to go and eat their greens of fresh hay that we produce on the farm in the summer.
We are also local. This means, our product is produced, processed and sold all within Alberta!
NOtaBLE – The Restaurant
A Family Business
The Hermus family moved from The Netherlands to Canada in 2005 to the growing city of Brooks, Alberta. Marc, Corina and the three kids (Anke, Frank and Bas) started farming cereal crops with the hope to expand their operation to other possibilities. Marc has always had a dream of having a livestock operation that is sustainable for the future and will provide a new challenge. He initially started exploring the idea of a goat dairy many years ago but wanted to wait until the perfect opportunity came along. Fairwinds farm was that perfect opportunity. The Hermus’s are looking forward to learning everything we can from the Oudshoorns and working closely with the ever-growing customer base.
