Heavy use cement feeding area for our cows

We constructed a cement feeding area which will allow our cows to feed outside later in the fall, earlier in the spring and even on nice days throughout the winter. Outside exercise and fresh air are also important factors in the overall health of cows, so we are glad to have worked with the local NRCS office (Natural Resources Conservation Service) to develop the plans for this project.

Cows just wanna have fun!

Cows need room to run! After a long winter in Northern Maine, they really enjoy getting back out into the pastures where they have lots of room to run.


Making hay while the sun shines

Whether the bales are round or square, we need lots of hay to feed the herd. The old saying about making hay while the sun shines rings true during the summer months on our family farm.


Welcome to Chase’s Organic Dairy Farm! We are a family owned and operated organic dairy farm located on the Creasey Ridge Road in Mapleton, Maine. We have about 100 cows in our herd, mostly Red & White Holsteins with a few Jerseys and Black & White Holsteins mixed in. We milk about 60 cows, on average.

Our farm was started by Lewis Fraser Chase in 1935 and has been carried on by his two sons, first Donald and then Vaughn. The entire family is involved in caring for the land and the cattle.

We are very happy to join Organic Valley‘s family of farms! We started shipping milk to them on July 21, 2014. We’re excited about their expansion into Aroostook County and appreciate the opportunity to work with them to help grow organic farming in “The County.” We are very thankful to 27 other Organic Valley farmers in Maine who are contributing .25 per hundredweight of milk shipped for a year to help support the hauling cost of the new route.
