Arethusa Farm was established in 1999 when owners, George Malkemus and Anthony Yurgaitis — the majority owners of Manolo Blahnik, purchased a horse farm across from their Litchfield, Connecticut home. The original plan called for starting a dairy farm and bottling milk for sale to the local community. However, their milk has become a huge success. Malkemus and Yurgaitis have expanded the new Arethusa Farm into one of the most premier breeding farms in North America—now also a dairy farm—that is attractive and appreciated by the local community. The foundational values at Arethusa Farm are caring for superior animals with the best possible practices, the preservation of a working dairy farm—in times when farms are diminishing—and good stewardship of irreplaceable land.
