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 raw milk cow shares, pork and chicken eggs to the local area.
