Ideal Dairy Farms, owned and operated by the Dickinson and Getty Families, started selling milk by the dipper, door to door, around 1908. Ideal Dairy packaged and sold their milk to local communities until 1987. Today, we care for our herd of registered Holsteins including 1,900 heifers and 3,200 mature cows producing 210,000 pounds (24,000 gallons) of milk per day. To support the nutritional needs of the herd, we operate 4,500 acres in Washington and Warren counties. We remain committed to the production of “Quality milk,” using superior genetics, a focus founded with the onset of Ideal’s 1913 slogan “Where Quality and Service Meet.”
Ideal Dairy strives to sustain a long-term viable business, producing high quality milk, through exceptional animal husbandry; valuing team member contributions and teamwork; promoting stewardship of our soil and water resources; and striving to develop a positive view of agriculture within our community.
We have 35 AMAZING team members that keep our cows well cared for and happy! We are very fortunate to have a great team working to keep our operation running smoothly. We extend our gratitude for their hard work and loyalty. We couldn’t do it without you!
We are firm believers of the motto "Work hard, play hard"! Farming is full of challenges, long days, and short nights, but we make the most of our occasional time away from the farm!
