Brookfield Farm

Durham, CT
200 acres
36 milking cows

Royal roots

Many Northeastern dairy families have deep roots, but the Greenbacker family goes really deep, all the way back to 1723 when their ancestors received a land grant from the King of England. That makes almost 300 years of Greenbacker farming heritage in central Connecticut where they now manage a herd totaling about 300, mostly Holsteins with a smattering of Jerseys, Brown Swiss and even a few Milking Shorthorns.
