JAZZ ON THE FARM AUGUST 7, 2016
Back by popular demand, Some Like It Hot Club will be playing favorites by Django Reinhardt, Duke Ellington, and Louis Armstrong on the Bobolink House lawn from 1-4 pm. We'll be serving up Bobolink Burgers, Cheese Plates, and goodies from the garden. There is no charge for the music, but we request that you make reservations, and order your food in advance by clicking here.
WARNING! TRAFFIC DETOUR ENROUTE TO BOBOLINK (July 2016)
Please note that the County Route 513 is closed due to construction in Franklin Township, and the marked detour route is confusing and circuitous!
We recommend that, if you are coming to see us via Interstate 78, DO NOT use exit 15 and Route 513, rather continue west to exit 11 and follow your navigation program's routing from there.
Just pretend that your phone is your mom, and do what she tells you!
We will be open our usual hours Sat/Sun 9-5 with tours kicking off at 2:00 each day.
Good, wholesome, nutritious food is a passion for us, and creating good food in a sustainable manner, while healing the earth, is our life’s mission.
Bobolink Dairy and Bakehouse was founded by Jonathan and Nina White in 2002, on leased farmland. We purchased a 186 acre farmstead in Milford, NJ in March of 2010, and moved our family, herd and business to Milford in June 2010.
The Bobolink is a ground-nesting bird that relies on undisturbed grasslands for its reproduction. As such, they are compatible with pastured animals, but cannot tolerate tilled cropland. Once as common as the robin, they are now severely limited across their entire range.
By naming our business for this creature, we hope to increase public awareness about how important it is for agriculture to respect and nurture wildlife.
In the 2016 season, we'll be milking approximately 35 cows, and we have a bumper crop of young heifers and bulls of our new breed, the Bobolink Blacks, which are the result of crossing several common "modern" dairy breeds (Ayrshire, Guernsey, Jersey, etc.) with the ancient Kerry cattle of Ireland.
Our Bakehouse creates breads and pastries that are made with heritage and heirloom grains, risen slowly for maximum flavor and nutrition. We are grateful to artisan grain growers, who provide us with top quality raw materials to bake in our wood-fired oven!
