Up next in our June Dairy Month series of 30 dairy farms in 30 days is All Wright Farms located in Muncie, Indiana! Check back daily for a new featured farm.
All Wright Farms is a fourth generation dairy farm located in Delaware County. Dan Wright and four of his sons are currently running All Wright Farms which consists of a 220 cow dairy along with 2800 acres of crops.
Family members are active in many community activities including Lions Club, church board, and school board, just to name a few. One unique thing about the farm is the Wrights have not purchased any cattle for over 60 years — all the milk cows are descendants of the cows the family had 60 years ago! The farm hosts school tours and is active in the community.
Alan Wright was the Rookie Milkman at this year’s Indianapolis 500–handing bottles of ice-cold milk to the winning car owner and chief mechanic. Next year, Alan will have a bottle of milk waiting in Victory Circle for the winning driver. The tradition of the Drink of Milk in Victory Lane at the Indianapolis 500 began in 1933, which is the same year that All Wright Farms was founded
