What is one thing you love about being a dairy farmer?
Every day is different from the day before, and there is no better way to raise a family than farming. We love the challenge of farming, the closeness of our family working together, and knowing that we are making a difference in our community.
Tell us about one or two hobbies or passions you (or your family) have outside of the farm
In addition to our dairy farm, we also own and operate a dairy store. We process and sell our own milk, as well as making ice cream. Between the farm and the store, we are very busy, so our favorite hobby is to spend a day off together as a family!
Share your favorite farm family memory.
Our favorite memory was the day Tucker was born. He is the start of the sixth generation on this farm, and it’s so exciting to see him falling in love with the farm, it’s the start of a whole new chapter.
Share your favorite family recipe.
This delicious dessert is quick and easy to make – a perfect treat for summer picnics or BBQs!
