We are answering these questions plus so much more in this 10 part series. What would we of wanted to tell ourselves six years ago? We are excited in supporting you and your family on this next step on your homestead!


In this course we will share everything you need to know about finding and bringing home your family milk cow, caring for your cow, breeding and calving, plus so much more! We will share our highs and lows over the last 6 years of having a family cow and streamline the research process we have done.

Hi! We are the Vaughan Family

My name is Jenesse! Along with my husband Nathan and our four kiddos ranging from seven months to six years, make Vaughan Family Farm!

We are so excited to share with you all the things we have learned since bringing home our first milk cow six years ago. Neither my husband or I grew up on a farm and we both had never milked a cow. We jumped in with both feet and made mistakes along the way, mistakes we hope you won’t have to!

We hope this course will streamline the process of looking all over the place for information about your family milk and give you confidence in adding one to your homestead.

Happy Milking!
