For three generations my family has owned and operated a small dairy farm in southern Pennsylvania. Most of our business has been confined to a 10 to 20 mile radius from our headquarters, but when I started working with my dad a few years ago, we began to discuss expansion. Over the past few years our clientele has more than tripled, which has necessitated some significant changes.
First of all, much of our equipment and machinery had to be updated. This included a new stainless steel vat, as well as modernized packing equipment. While it has been a lot of work, the process is certainly paying off; we recently purchased a farm in New York and plan on growing our company even further.
