Cynthia and Edwin Laprise got their four youngsters started beginning in 2002 and their herd of Jerseys grew from a couple of heifer calves to a string of 26 presently that also in- cludes a few Ayrshires and one Hol- stein. The farm began producing milk commercially in 2008. The name draws on the first letters of the names of the four Laprise youngsters, Elizabeth, Mat- thew, Maggie and Alexandra, all of whom are currently in school or college. Scooter Laprise is a well- known player in the Rhode Island forestry sector and has operated a thriving log trucking business for more than 20 years.
