In addition, the Dygerts deliver milk to over 70 local stores and offer home delivery. “The customers can go right online, place their order and get the delivery the following week,” Robby says.
“When I grow up, I want to do the dairy business and bottle milk and stuff that my parents do,” says the Dygert family’s oldest son, 10-year-old Dylan. Robby and Shannon are doing everything to ensure the farm continues to thrive in hopes that their children choose careers in dairy farming.
“It’s very important for us to leave not only the land but this dairy farm for our future generations, for our kids to be able to come back and work on the farm so it can be a 14th generation, or 15th generation farm with their children,” Shannon says.
And maybe, just maybe, the farm will see future generations of Dygerts celebrate the farm’s quadricentennial anniversary.
