VENDOR SPOTLIGHT

LOMAH Dairy



Say hello to LOMAH Dairy!

LOMAH Dairy has been an anchor of the Tulsa Farmers' Market since 2011 and their products can be found all over Green Country including at many local restaurants. 


"LOMAH Dairy has a rich history involving Jersey Cows. Stanley Johnson and his father drove to Wisconsin and bought his first Jersey heifer as a 4-H project. His family did not have a dairy, they raised beef cattle. This cow named Rosie was the beginning of his dairy herd. Stanley grew his Jersey herd through his years in FFA and while enrolled in junior college. He moved to Stillwater to attend OSU and sold his small herd and it was heartbreaking for him. Fast forward 15 years and there is a dispersal sale of registered Jerseys in NW AR. We called the banker and was approved for a loan over the phone and we came home the same day as owners of 39 registered Jerseys. We purchased calves and heifers and then worked like maniacs to get an approved dairy facility before they started calving. From that point, the dairy grew but there were many financial stressors. In 2009, we made the decision to learn and establish a cheesemaking business or else we could not hang onto the dairy, there were too many financial pressures. We went to Vermont several times and then I (Donna) traveled to New York and Canada to continue learning the art of cheesemaking and affinage.

Today, we still have a small herd of Jersey cows that live on 400 acres and get to lay under shade trees and drink from springs. Our cows are very well cared for and are amazing. We know each cow by name and we know her personality. We can look at one of our cows and know if she is having an off day! Our son, Will just graduated from Kansas State University in May and is home to take over the dairy. He receives much help caring for the cows from his sister, Grace. We are excited to see what changes Will might bring. We know he will be a good steward of the land, after all, he was an agronomy major.

We love coming to Tulsa Farmer’s Market and seeing the people, both vendors and customers. We love getting feedback from customers on our products also. Being a dairy farmer is an incredible amount of work and you have to love it or you will not do it day after day. I found it to be a beautiful life and now two of our children are coming to the same conclusion. That makes all the years of hard work really worthwhile!" - Donna Johnson
