All About Us


 

My name is Jennifer Downey and I have owned and bred Saanen and La Mancha goats for almost 30 years and now raise French Alpines and once again, NUBIANS.  I  worked for DHIA for several years testing both cow and goat dairy herds in New England. Night Sky Farm strives to produce a superior product and healthy, correct livestock. 16143_101208069904757_100000466938919_35969_2875334_n-1I am the cheese-maker, the overseer of operations and the head of transportation with only one pick-up truck.

Currently the goat herd numbers 18 milking does.  There is one registered Jersey cow in milk named Emmy. I also have her 2013 heifer, Gabriella. Gabriella is a registered Jersey like her dam.  In 2015, there should be 2 Jersey cows in milk!

  1. Hello Jennifer! I just wanted to thank you so much for allowing us to visit your farm the other day. We are really enjoying your cheese and soaps- they are awesome!! Please remind me of the soap scent of the egg shaped one with cream and brown swirls in it. I think that’s our favorite so far!!

    I gave your info. to someone new to the area who is interested in getting a dairy goat or possibly a cow. She had a lot of questions and I thought maybe you could provide her some guidance. Her name is Robin Mullins.

    If Micah (I hope I spelled it correctly) ever needs a riding buddy, please keep us in mind. We have two horses and maybe we can ride together sometime!

    Hope all is well with you!
    Jennifer

  2. We meet at the St Stephen’s Farmer’s Market and we have the pictures of the plates and bowls you were interested in. If you send me an email address, I will send them to you. Love the cheese!!!
    Thanks,
    Phillip Zoffuto
