Brand Farms

Number four in our 30 dairies in 30 days June Dairy Month series is Brand Farms in Waterloo, Indiana! Make sure to check back every day to see a new featured farm–and also don’t miss the delicious chip dip recipe from this farmer’s kitchen at the end of the post!

Brand Farms was founded in 1972.

When the farm began, the Brands had 40 cows on 240 acres, but now it has grown to 400 cows. Cows at Brand Dairy Farm eat food grown right there on the farm. The Brands tend to 2,600 acres of crops so their cows have a reliable food supply close at hand.
