Welcome to Birdsong Farm!
Naomi De Ruiter, Modern Milkmaid & Artisan Cheesemaker™, raises Jersey cows and teaches cheese making workshops at venues in the Okanagan, Shuswap, and Thompson regions of British Columbia.
Looking to add a Jersey to your farm? Searching for a friendly homestead cow to provide fresh milk for your family?
Birdsong Farm raises quality registered Jerseys, and breed for type and milk using a combination of both Canadian and US genetics. All of our cows are halter trained, good with hand or machine milking, 100% DNA tested, and tested for Beta and Kappa Casein type. We actively participate in classification and milk testing as well.
Naomi De Ruiter is the Modern Milkmaid™ and Artisan Cheesemaker at Birdsong Farm.
She has 15 years of experience raising and milking dairy cattle. In addition to caring for her own small herd of Jerseys, she spent 18 months managing a dairy farm in the Okanagan Valley and now dairy farms alongside her husband and his family.
