About Silky Cow

Born in 1988 Nathan Vergin grew up on his family’s farm in MN where they raised cows, goats, sheep, ducks, chickens and pigs. Being home-schooled allowed him to work full time at Shepherds Way Farm, a large sheep dairy and farmstead cheese making operation. Nathan moved to Staunton, VA in 2005 to work as an apprentice at Polyface Farms. After completing his apprenticeship Nathan stayed on a 2nd year as apprentice manager. In 2008 Nathan moved to the other side of the Blue Ridge Mountains where he accomplished a cheese making and cooking apprenticeship at Caromont Farm. In 2009 Nathan married his wife Amy and went back to work for Polyface managing the Greenmont rental farm, purchased a small herd of Jersey cows and started his own business, Silky Cow LLC.  After building the business for 2 1/2 years they moved in the winter of 2012 to a new farm in North Garden.  He is offering grass fed, farm fresh milk herd shares, pork and chicken eggs to the local area.

  1. Hey Nathan!
    Our milk would have been in plastic last week.
    I went by on Monday afternoon and it wasn’t there.
    Let me know if I need to write another check for September…
    I’ll let you know if it clears.
    Thanks so much,
