June 2017 brought excitement as we welcomed the first cows across the rotary parlor to be milked. Weeks of planning paid off as the transition went better than expected. Both cows and Oakridge team members are settling into their new home, and we are looking forward to our Open House this Fall to showcase the new facility. Oakridge wants to thank each person who made this project a reality- and to our community for their support and patience during this time. Oakridge strives to " produce quality milk products in unity with our community".
Oakridge Dairy's new facility is an eye catching attraction in Ellington. Folks who drive by see daily progress on this significant undertaking. The Oakridge team is proud to bring the dairy into modern farming practices- increasing efficiency, cow comfort and health, technology and standards on the farm.
Oakridge is thankful to all the contractors who have made this construction process run smoothly:
Ag Ventures LLC - New York
Handfield Dairy Equipment - North Franklin, CT
McCarthy Concrete- South Windsor CT
Meyers Cad Design -Howard City - MI
