Incredible Farm in Walsden has taken delivery of two very sweet young jersey heifers (young girl cows).

The girls are looking forward to teaching us all about small scale cow keeping, learning by doing! We think family cows deserve a comeback, what could be nicer than your own milk on your moooosley?

Cow Club was started by crowd funding where over £1,500 was raised to buy the girls and pay for their food and expenses until they get into milk in a couple of years time.

In the meantime we are already training them up and aim to teach them to do light draft work iike Oxen.

Membership of Cow Club is open to anyone - and there’s a lot to do from picking names to shovelling poo!

The girls are very sweet, gentle and sociable, they like dogs, carrots and a big fuss.

Thanks to Long Causeway Farm who raised them so well and to Mellings farm for advice support and transport.
