Located in Exeter, this 12-acre farm has around 32 milking cows in its 60-head herd of primarily Jersey cows. The name EMMA comes from owners Scooter and Cynthia LaPrise's 4 kids: Elizabeth, Matthew, Margaret and Alexandra.
The first two cows were bought for the children to show at 4-H exhibitions, which they still do today. Scooter was awarded the 2007 Conservation Farmer of the Year for his efforts in building a new milking facility and manure storage.
