Oak Leaf Dairy is owned and operated by Mark and Jackie Reynolds, along with our children and family. Our dairy is located on charming Bogg Lane in Lebanon, Connecticut and is made up of one hundred and fifty acres that has been in our family since the 1920’s. Our thirty dairy goats produce milk which is used in the making of cheddar and lovely goat milk soap.
In the beginning… In 1922, our great grandparents started and operated the farm as a cow dairy farm. Starting in the 1980s the family used the farm for haymaking until 2005.
Then came the goats… In 2006, our children wanted to get more involved around the farm and also wanted to join a 4H club. We decided in addition to producing hay we would farm the land again with animals. We chose dairy goats, due to their size, mild mannered behavior, and child-friendly easy handling! We began milking 30 goats and in February of 2007 we started making goat milk soap.
Today… We continue to make all of our own hay to feed our goats and all of our pastures and fields are chemical free. With the support and help of our family and friends, Oak Leaf Dairy is growing more successful by the day!
