Last week Iowa CommonGround Volunteer Jill and her family visited VanEss Dairy in Northwest Iowa.
Here is a little bit of her post. You can read the rest of her post here: http://www.cornfieldsandtractorwheels.com/
Last night we had the opportunity to attend an open house at VanEss Dairy, which is our largest local dairy. We walked around to different stations in the barns, and they explained what happens in each area and how it is done. Harvey and Lisa VanEss and their sons are the owners/operators of the dairy. Harvey and Lisa moved their family to Northwest Iowa from Idaho and built this new dairy to enable all five of their sons to be involved in the business. They are a wonderful family and their business is a true asset to the area.
