Windsor Dairy Cheese Fund Raiser for Rist Canyon Volunteer Fire Department all of August, 2012.
The High Park Fire was a catastrophe. This picture, taken during our family’s post-fire tour up Rist Canyon, symbolizes the loss of homes.
Many thank-you signs were posted by truly appreciative residents of the fire area. In fact, the national Fire Chief said that the veteran firefighters really appreciated our outpouring of salutes and thank-you signs. They dubbed our community the Friendliest and Favorite Community they had ever fought in!
The fire was within 2.0 miles of our home in LaPorte on 10 June. It was really in our backyard. Fiona has friends in school that were evacuated from their homes. We hauled our beef bulls nearer to the fire on 22 June when they had run out of grazing in Windsor. They reside now about .25 mile from the eastern border of the 87,000+ acre fire! Our cheeses Buckhorn and MacIntyre are named after locations in the fire area.
We are thankful that the rains of 5-8 July finished the fire that 2000 dedicated firefighters and millions of dollars could not put out. We are thankful to the firefighters from all over the west that helped to save many homes.
Rist Canyon Volunteer Fire Department, http://www.rcvfd.org/, at the heart of this fire, was exemplary in its dedication to the fire war. These guys are volunteers, and many left jobs for weeks to continue the fight. The RCVFD spent much money it did not have to save homes. We want to help them in a small way, with an act of thankfulness from Windsor Dairy.
Windsor Dairy is having a RCVFD cheese sales fund raiser. All of our cheeses are included. For each and every pound of any of our cheeses that you buy during August, we will donate $1.00 to RCVFD.
THANKS to the RCVFD!
Like you, we love our Raw Milk and organic food. Here's to your health!
PowerPoints, oh my! Drs. Arden and Meg present the skinny on what's really good for you!
Windsor Dairy is the only licensed Grade A organic dairy in the state of Colorado committed to producing raw milk from 100% grass-fed cattle.About Windsor Dairy →
It all starts with clean-living cows eating high quality grass and other prairie staples.More Raw Milk →
One of the many positive distinctions that we enjoy with our 100% grass fed milk is the seasonality of it. What the cows are eating has a direct impact on the milk that they provide, and lucky for us, our cows eat no grain - ever, only pasture grasses and forage (including many wild and native grasses, legumes, and flowers - Meg & Arden spend a lot of time planning and planting the pastures' bounty!). In winter, the cows eat grass hay and alfalfa hay, as well as some standing grass leftover from the late-fall growth.

Windsor Dairy is owned and operated by Drs. Meg Cattell & Arden Nelson, board certified bovine veterinarians. Windsor Dairy employs weekly bacteria testing to insure that your milk is free of bacterial pathogens.
In May of 2005 the Colorado state legislature recognized that people should have the freedom to consume raw milk. It is now legal to drink fresh milk from a cow that you own.
This means you can buy a share of a cow in our herd and board it at our farm. In exchange you have access to the most delicious and nutritious milk we know of. Please review our FAQs to find information on how to get started.
You may visit your cow during our pick up hours, and we encourage you to do so. We perform a service for you by feeding, caring for, and milking your cow, and you benefit by being able to utilize the milk.
