What's New In Paradise

Happenings from Alvin, Sadie and Family at Alpine Heritage Creamery
A little on the cows.
Here in early August we are having some awesome weather that is great for both cattle and people. This picture was taken on one of the most beautiful summer evenings. Our milking herd of 53 cows and 1 bull (all trained to pose for a photo shoot) are really enjoying the tall lush grass after the evening milking.
They will stay in this paddock until we bring them in for the morning milking around 4:30 AM. They get moved to a fresh paddock with tall green grass 2 to 5 times daily. We also have 15 young cows called heifers that will calve and start milking when they are 24 to 30 months old. A few will calve this fall and the rest next spring and summer.
We also have 9 baby calves born this spring that are still nursing with their mothers.
The milk from our A2/A2, 100% grass fed, certified organic cows is made into delicious, 100% raw milk cheese at our onsite farm creamery called Alpine Heritage Creamery. All of our cows have been tested for A2/A2.
We craft 8oz and 2.5 pound blocks of cheese and ship them to all 50 states. We also have gift packages and bulk bundle pricing available. The other day we had a request from Alberta Canada, asking about our Delicious and Nutritious cheeses and wanted to see if we could ship to them. We are in the process of working out the logistics, stay tuned. Our newest flavors include No Salt Cheddar, Kosher Cheddar and Cranberry Cheddar.

It’s harvest time in Paradise. Last week we began picking tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet corn, pickle cukes, zucchini, red beets, and carrots. Watermelon will be ready soon.
It’s time for the last planting of green beans and cold weather crops - cabbage, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and brussels sprouts. We are also planting some diverse cover crops soon- oats, Sudan grass, daikon radish, and turnips.
We use some family heirloom seeds and mostly buy from the local greenhouse. We apply Epsom Salt and kelp amendments and mulch heavily with hay. We don’t use pesticides. We pick the potato bugs off the plants by hand.
Our family favorites are zucchini, squash, lettuce, and cucumbers. We produce mainly for our family’s use and enjoyment. Although, we will have some of our extra produce for sale in our farm store along with our delicious cheeses.
A little bit about the puppies
Our 7 miniature Labradoodle puppies were born June 5th, 2023 to the delight of our family, Alvin and Sadie, Ruthie age (13), Anne (12), Marlin (10), Rosa (6) and Karen (1).
The puppies mother is Luna, (F1 Miniature Labradoodle) she weighs 28 lbs., and the father is Prince (Miniature Poodle) and he is 12 lbs. These wonderfully exciting cute little puppies love to play and interact with our whole family especially the smallest children. Their health records are up to date and they all have a clean bill of health from the vet. We provide a 2 yr. genetic health guarantee. Their expected mature weight is 15 to 26 lbs. The puppies are now ready to go to their forever homes as they have turned 8 weeks old.
Contact Alvin 717-847-3397 to bring one home.
Thank you for choosing our farm for your family's health!
Have a Blessed Day!
