Five Mile Farm is owned and operated by the Akins family. We are a multi-generational dairy and beef farm. We currently milk 450 Holsteins in Northern New York. Our township is Lisbon which is five minutes from the St. Lawrence River and has four universities within a short drive. Mark and Ryan Akins are the current owners and managers. Mark works primarily with the animals and financials. Ryan works with the feeding and cropping system. Both graduated from Cornell, Mark in 88' and Ryan in 14'. Our dairy farm is currently growing to maximize the use of our current land base. Along with growing in cow numbers we also have implemented technology. Our farm currently has Dairy Comp., Cow Manager (Rumination and Activity), TMR Tracker (Feeds), and Delpro (Milking). Under construction is a 50 stall Delaval Rotary Parlor. We are hoping to be milking in it February 2017! Also a 400 milk cow free stall is just being finished.  Our farm has a lot of opportunity to excel and learn. It is a place that you will need to work very hard but can visibly see your accomplishments. We are a small enough farm that you will work with the owners. But a large enough farm to have good employees with responsibilities.
