WELCOME Stan Lawson, Brown Eyed Girl Creamery, Cleveland, GA.
Stan Lawson is a dairy farmer raising Jersey cows. He has agreed to sell his “*Raw Milk for Pets*” to The Cumming Harvest, initially selling online every other week eventually selling every week as the demand grows. His cows do not get antibiotics unless the cow is sick and the advised by the vet. His pastures are not sprayed and he uses composted poultry manure as fertilizer. He does not use commercial fertilizers. The pastures are a mix of bermuda, fescue, clover, orchard grass and perennial rye grass. In addition to grass, the cows get a small amount of non-medicated grain and hay during milking. He is licensed through the Georgia Department of Agriculture and all milk is labeled for Pet Food Only as required by Georgia Law. We’re happy to have them.
