After meeting back in 2008 in college and then working together for nearly five years on a Vermont goat dairy, Alex Eaton and Margot Brooks purchased their 23-acre farm in Upper Jay. The land base was small, the pastures were overgrown and full of weeds, and the soil was sour and lacking in nutrients, but what the little farm lacked in agricultural virtues it made up for in other ways.
There were two farmhouses, both in good condition, and a number of pretty outbuildings that were deemed “straight, tight, and right” by Alex’s dad Mr. Maxwell Eaton Jr. With its proximity to Lake Placid and the Adirondack high peaks, the farm was in an ideal location for marketing value-added dairy products.
And lastly, there was the crown jewel of the farm, a handsome and sturdy Dutch gambrel barn outfitted with twelve cow stalls– the perfect space to house a milkhouse, a milking parlor, a creamery and an office.
