Lamb Farms is a family dairy operation owned and operated by the Lamb and Veazey families. The farm has grown over time – in size, in cows, in people and in responsibilities! Lamb Farms was founded in Oakfield in 1966 when (Grandpa) Leslie and (Dad) Gordon sold their Darien Center farm to Darien Lake State Park. They purchased what is now our home farm from Roy Woller and started out milking 110 cows. Ten years later, Leslie and Gordon added Jim Veazey as a partner in the farm.
Today, we have two generations and 13 family members involved in our blended family business. This arrangement allows everyone to have an area of expertise. The Lamb’s tend to be cow people – they enjoy managing the herd and making sure all the ladies are in tip-top shape, while the Veazey’s are crop people – they make sure our crops are in order, that we have ample feed for our animals, and they also handle the farm office. Farming is a complex operation and we feel blessed to have so many talented people in our family to help steer our ship so that one day the next generation will have the opportunity to live this fulfilling lifestyle.
This year, 2016, we’re celebrating 50 years of farming in Oakfield!
