The Young Family

We are often asked – “Is Young’s family owned?”  the answer is yes!  We can trace our history to 1869, when relatives of the Young family established the farm and built the red barn you see when visiting.  Hap Young bought the 60-acre farm and house shortly after the end of World War II. For the next 10 years, Hap and his three sons Carl, Bob, and Bill farmed the 60 acres, plus up to 500 additional rented acres. They grew grain, raised hogs, and milked cows.

In 1958, the Young Family decided to try to sell our Jersey milk directly to the public. The first sales room was a modest operation. We built a 10′ by 10′ room onto the end of the milk room. The equipment was also modest – some glass jugs, a refrigerator, a cash drawer, and the honor system.  Young’s Customers would drive up, open the refrigerator, get a gallon of milk, leave an empty jug and the money, and drive away.

Now, of the 320 total people that work at Young’s, there are a lot of Young family members here every day!  Bill, Dan, Cathy, Ben, Deb, Lee, Stuart, Jill, Jay, Kelly and Rob are here most of the time.  Chase and Kyle help out when not in school.  Cousins and second cousins and such include Judy, Beth, Chuck, Cierra, Bill (another Bill!), Cody & Brady.  Other Young’s that help on events and other projects include John, Kelly (another Kelly!), Hunter, Pam, Julie, Jesse and Katie.  Young’s that have worked on the farm in the past include Hap & Mildred, Carl (who runs the Christmas tree farm), Bob, Jo, Marilyn, Rita, Blair and Brian.

So…yes, we are family owned and operated!  Anytime you visit Young’s, most likely there is at least one and probably several Young family members here.

We always appreciate your family visiting our farm – and look forward to serving you on your next visit.
