The Silloway dairy farm has been in the Silloway family since 1940. Today, the dairy partnership
consists of David Silloway -- named in 2009 by the Vermont Farm Bureau as Vermont Farmer of
the Year – his son, John, and John’s cousin, Paul. Comprised of over 600 acres, the diversified
farm includes a 65-cow dairy herd that produces high-quality milk. With the help of VACC’s Organic Transition Program, the dairy owners are in the process of transitioning from conventional to organic management. The Silloways pre-purchased organic grain and financed some of their transitional operating costs.
