Allen Healy and his wife Caitlin Jones run Mermaid Farm and Dairy in Chilmark with their brood: two boys and a couple of border collies, who mostly keep the herds of sheep and cows in line – the pigs, too, if and when they get out – and any people who come by the farmstand for vegetables, grains, yogurt, lassis, raw milk, cheese and meat.
