Goldenflo Holsteins is located in the scenic Hillsborough River, just east of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada. The home farm has been in the family since the island was populated in the 1800’s by absentee landowners. The farm is a multi-generational family farm with the first registered Holstein being purchased by Athol in the late 1960’s.
The simple philosophy that has served Goldenflo Holsteins over the years is, “If you are going to milk cows 2X a day, 7 days a week, you might as well milk a good one.” By following this, it has allowed Goldenflo Holsteins to achieve Master Breeder status, as well as numerous All-Canadian and All-American nominations. It has helped form the appreciation that they receive every time they walk into the barn and see a group of well, deep pedigreed cow families. They strive daily to ensure better breeding and better cows, creating a herd that is desirable for them and any other dairy.
Goldenflo Holsteins has developed into a herd of a 100 milking cows which are housed in a modern tie-stall facility.. The land base has expanded to over 900 acres, with most feed inputs grown on-farm.
