Over 90 years after Ed and Johanna Larson began farming in Magnolia Township, Don and Virginia carried on the farming tradition in 1957 at the current Larson Acres’ site. Today, Mike, Ed and Donald Larson — with the help of children and spouses — are all involved with the operation that has grown from humble beginnings to a dairy that milks 2,800 cows and farms more than 5,000 acres while supporting our local area and its environment.
Many things have changed since we first began farming, but the principles by which we operate haven’t. At Larson Acres, dairy farming is about producing high-quality milk. But it’s also much more than that. It is about doing what’s right for the families in our community, our animals and the environment.
At Larson Acres, we focus on three key things that are the foundation of everything we do as a family dairy business — quality, pride and family. We take a great deal of pride in the top quality product we produce for consumers across America. But it's not just about the milk we produce. For generations, our family has taken pride in how we care for our animals, how we protect our environment, how we plan for the future, how we treat our employees and how we give back to the community in which we live.
Larson Acres currently employs 70 local residents including 11 family members. We are dedicated to bringing a top-quality product to tables across America and are proud of the team we have in place.
