Snider's Dairy

Snider's Dairy Our Motto is: "Where Every Animal is Treated like a Pet" Snider's Dairy Farm is a family owned dairy farm located in Denton, North Carolina. We have a small herd that consist of 45 head of cattle.

Unlike most dairy farms, we milk Holsteins, Jerseys, Brown Swiss and Ayrshire cattle, four of the six dairy breeds. We strive to be as organic as possible with our cattle. Our dairy cows are mostly grazed on pasture and fed a complete mixed ration grain free from hormones and milk enhancing supplements. Each one of our cows are individually named and are referred to by name rather than their ident

We are just nosing our way through this work week.

Did you know that cows can smell odors up to 6 miles away? That’s using those cute little sniffers right in our books!

Can you tell the dairy cow breed by its nose? Some of them are tricky because they’re more than one breed. How well do you know our girls?

Summer time is coming and well we’re excited to announce that on top of doing summer farm tours we’re going to have a once in a lifetime opportunity for your child!

That’s right we’re hosting dairy camps for the summer of 2022. A half day long educational opportunity for your child to learn all about dairy farming and the NC dairy industry. Not only this, but your child will get hands on experience with our animals. From handling, milking, grooming, and more! Your child will get to experience the magic behind what makes our dairy farm run each day. We’re planning on doing a series of these camps and dates/times will be announced later but we’re looking for interest of individuals. We will have an elementary age camp, middle school camp, and high school camp. Each camp will be designed for each age specifically. Let us know your interested by commenting below so that we can decide how many days of camp we need to have. Camps will be capped at 10 children per camp.

Also we’re working hard on summer tour schedules so we will get information about booking those out soon!

Over the past few weeks we have expanded our sheep flock!! We’re finally excited to show them off to you. We are also struggling to find names for the ewes (female sheep) so drop your best names in the comments and help me get these sweet faces named!

We’ve been getting lots of messages about lamb pictures for Easter and we currently have baby lambs available with more on the way! We LOVE spring on the farm and all the new life. We are working on getting a schedule together for these pictures and will post it later on this week.

Introducing our first calf of 2022 and she is a BEAUTY!

Everyone meet Ruby! Weighing a HUGE 47 pounds, Ruby joined our farm yesterday evening. We’ve been waiting for the arrival of this little baby for awhile now and she is finally here. While Ruby and her mother Masliey lives on our farm, these two animals actually belong to some great friends of the farm. We’re excited to start 2022 out with another baby girl!

Photographers:

Ruby is going to be available for pictures on select dates. Message us to schedule your sessions. If we cannot get you scheduled for a session with Ruby we have lots more cute babies on the way.

We’ve got a lot of new followers lately so I thought I’d take a second to introduce myself and our farm. My name is Josh Snider and with the help of my dad, brother, nephew, and girlfriend we run this amazing small scale dairy farm here in beautiful Lexington, North Carolina.

Most of the post and videos you see come from me. I just love telling my families dairy farming story and educating others on the importance of the dairy industry. I have a BS in Animal Science from the University of Tennessee and a MS degree in Agriculture Education from NC A&T. I am also an agriculture teacher for West Davidson High School. Educating the future on where our food comes from is so very important. Not only do I get to live on a farm but I get to bring my farm experiences into the classroom each day with my students.

Our small little dairy farm is very different from others and we like to keep it that way. We milk approximately 30 cows with about 65 cows total on the farm. We milk a variety of dairy breeds including Holsteins, Jerseys, Guernseys, Ayrshire, and Brown Swiss cows. Our milk is sold to DFA (Dairy Farmers of America) and is locally processed here in NC. You can find all sorts of DFA products by visiting www.dfamilk.com. Our farm is also home to horses, goats, and sheep and all together houses approximately 85 animals total. Our animals spend majority of their days on pasture and each animal has their own name in which we call them by. We take pride in our animals and take extreme measures to keep them all healthy.

I hope you will continue to follow along with us as we journey through 2022 together. You’ll see a lot of cute animals and the truth of how milk gets to your table!

Well…the farm is officially covered in a blanket of the snow/sleet. While it does make for some beautiful pictures, as farmers we really don’t enjoy it. In fact I have come to dislike snow over the years. Normal chores take longer, things freeze up especially water tanks, and extra bedding has to be added 2-3 times a day to keep animals warm. Regardless of the weather our animals care and health is top priority to us. We farm 365 days a year, in all the elements to provide quality dairy products to consumers everywhere.

Today is National Milk Day!

We celebrate today because it was the very first time milk was delivered to homes inside sterilized glass bottles. It took until 1878 before anyone thought to fill the bottles with milk and seal them with waxed paper.

So help Mason out and raise a glass to natures most perfect power food! Packed with proteins, vitamins, and minerals milk is truly a one of a kind drink!

Fudge is a 5 year old Jersey/Holstein cow and is just starting on her 2nd lactation. Fudge is a sweetheart if you can’t just tell by her picture. She loves all the spotlight when it comes to having her picture taken. We felt that since Fudge was willing to help us celebrate Christmas we had to end the year with her being named our December 2021 employee of the month.

Yoshi is a 5 year old holstein cow. She is one of our larger cows and is probably one of the best milk producers on the farm. Like most of her herd mates Yoshi’s favorite thing to do is eat. Cows eat nearly 100 pounds of feed each day and Yoshi can be found making sure she gets her helping at the feed bunk. Due to her impressive performance in milk production we’re happy to announce Yoshi as our November 2021 employee of the month.

Haley is a 13 year old Jersey cow. She is the oldest cow on the farm and quite frankly makes our dairy a little bit more special. What she doesn’t make up in milk production she surly makes up in love. That’s right Haley is one of the most loving cows you will ever met. She is also very set in her ways in her golden years and only has one gear which is SLOW. While Haley isn’t the greatest milk cow she truly deserves the title of employee of the month for October for her honest work effort. What you see is what you get with Haley and we wouldn’t have it any other way around here. We’re excited to have Haley as our October 2021 employee of the month.

Sunni is a 6 year old Jersey/Holstein cross bred cow! She has became a fantastic member of our herd over the years and in the past few months really stood out amongst her herd mates! Sunni has done a fantastic job beating this summer heat and still holding her production high! Sunni has been on our farm since she was born and now has a daughter (Charlotte) who will be joining along side her in the milking barn at the end of the year. We are so impressed with Sunnis hard work that we have decided to name her out July 2021 employee of the month!

Christmas on the Farm completely outshines every other holiday event we've done. From horseback riding, bottle-feeding baby cows, learning and participating in the milking process to Maverick, Hitch, and the farm dogs, it's hard to choose what we enjoyed most. Josh and Brook now feel like old friends and we had an absolute blast. Thank you for your hospitality and don't be surprised if you see us trying to wiggle our way in on another tour. Merry Christmas and thank you for the great experience!
“Is this how this #TongueOutTuesday thing works?” Nugget asks. While this beautiful Jersey from DFA family-owned Snider's Dairy, Denton, N.C., may not be the most adept at social media trends, her breed is known for producing milk high in butterfat!
