Rupert Valley Holsteins

West Rupert, VT
750 acres
310 milking cows and 250 young stock

Mark and Mike Lourie are twin brothers who own Rupert Valley Holsteins Farm in West Rupert, Vermont. They have about 310 milkers and 250 young stock, and manage about 750 acres of cropland. Mark handles the cattle, farm finances, and the employees; Mike manages the crops and the heifers. The Louries' grandfather was a dairy farmer who purchased the original farm in 1930, and the twin boys were raised on the same farm as their dad. When Mark and Mike first started out, Mike and his dad operated the original farm and Mark milked 50 cows of his own nearby. The brothers joined forces in 1995 to form Rupert Valley Holsteins, LLC, and they have purchased a third farm since, so the spread is actually three farms in one.
