History The family has shared their history with us - read this wonderful story they have shared and view great photos! In 1948, our parents, Alvin and Milly Kinnard, had a dream. Recently returned from his service in WW-2, Dad and Mom wanted nothing more than to pursue their dream of building both a family and a dairy farm. Using money borrowed from their parents, Mom and Dad started by purchasing 80 acres located near Dad’s home farm. Knowing that great cows are the foundation of a dairy farm, 14 registered animals were purchased from a great uncle. Through their progressive approach and commitment to hard work, the farm prospered and grew. Today, our family and our team of talented employees crops nearly 12,000 acres of land and...
