Joy Weir, Jolly Farmer Cheese

On the rolling hillsides in the Saint John River valley of Northampton, New Brunswick, Jolly Farmer operates a mixed farm. We raise grass-fed beef and lamb, pasture raised pork and chicken, but our main source of income is the cheese and milk from our Brown Swiss dairy herd. Our animals are raised with plenty of space, air and sunshine; no artificial hormones or growth stimulants; we only use antibiotics in emergencies; we feed all non-GMO grains and forage. Our dairy and creamery are provincially inspected and licensed; we are very careful to maintain high standards of cleanliness and have won a milk quality award in New Brunswick for the past 5 years. We specialize in making raw milk cheeses thus maintaining all the good vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Joy Weir is the farm manager as well as the head cheese maker.
