The Cow Herd of Sunbonnet Farm

Clover the calf calf
Fresh milk products     At Sunbonnet Farm, we strive to raise healthy and happy cows that are adapted to Hawaii's climate, and meet the needs of small family dairies. Our cows are pasture raised, with plenty of room to graze and play.  They are not fed grain, and we do not use growth hormones. We treat our cows with kindness; we know them all individually, and each cow has a name.
    Our cows are a mix of Jersey, Brown Swiss, Normandy, and Black Angus.  We find this mix to be hardy, long lived, and productive.
    We frequently offer cattle for sale.  While bulls and bull calves are sold most often, we also sell trained milk cows and heifers.  Visit our livestock forsale page to see available cows.
