We are Utah and Nevada dairy farmers.
99% of the farms in our states are family owned and operated. Utah and Nevada rank 20th and 32nd in milk production respectively and produce a combined total of ~1.3% of the U.S. milk supply. Though we are not the nation’s largest dairy states, our region is mighty. Our climate, access to land and high quality feed is a recipe for healthy dairy cows who produces some of the most milk in the country.
Utah & Nevada are home to several processing plants including yogurt, cheese, fluid milk, ice cream, and small-batch artisan cheese making facilities. Nevada is home to a state of the art milk powder plant that ships high quality milk protein across the world.
We are passionate about connecting people with their food and their local farmers. If you are interested in setting up a dairy farm tour for students, health professionals, or your community, please get in touch.
This tour took a lot of the mystery and stigma away for me. | I learned that bigger farms can still be good.
I loved the discussion we had on the bus about the nutrition of it all. We have a lack of understanding in nutrition. I can't wait to learn and discover more!
It was fantastic to see local plants and get a better understanding how this works and a better understanding of how these places are incorporated in the community, to each other and to me and to meet the people who run these places.
