Yellow Springs Farm - 2015

CHESTER COUNTY: Assessing Dairy Goat Health, Body Structure & Nutritional Needs

Catherine and her husband & business partner, Al Renzi, purchased Yellow Springs Farm in 2001.  Formerly a 19th-century dairy, the land at Yellow Springs Farm was fallow when the Renzi’s acquired it.  Today the 8-acre farm has been restored through sustainable practices and conservation landscaping.  It includes both a native plant nursery and an artisanal goat cheese dairy.  The goat dairy started with two family pets and has grown to a full breeding and production herd of Nubian goats.  The goats eat a local, organic diet, and their milk is used to produce award-wining cheeses and yogurts. Yellow Springs Farm is a unique farm business in that they focus on growing and selling native landscape plants in their nursery.  In addition to nursery and goat dairy products, they offer landscape design, installation and consulting services.
