The business reflects the ideals of the American dream. In 1947, the owner’s father emigrated from the Netherlands to America in search of better opportunities. He started in California working for other dairies and eventually built up enough capital to start his own dairy in Modesto, Ca in 1955. When the business was expanded in the 1970s, it was state of the art, adopting some of the latest dairy technologies, and provided enough room to comfortably house 200 milking cows. Since then, the business has grown significantly. The business is currently owned and operated by the son who currently owns and operates the growing business
Today the farm is dedicated to the health and well-being of the cows, and is producing some of the highest quality milk around.
