Twin Oaks Dairy: The Next Generation

At Twin Oaks Dairy there have been many transitions over the years. In 1993 we ventured into new territory with our dairy herd as we transitioned to intensive rotational grazing, turning surrounding crop land into permanent pasture and meeting with success as our cows became happy and healthier eating a regular diet of lush, green grass.  1995 marked the beginning of our transition to organic and we became a certified organic farm in 1998.  Continuing the trend,  we welcome yet another transition this year, this time a generational one.  On October 1st, Rick and Kathie's twenty-three-year-old son Kirk, became the newest partner and co-owner of the farm. It's been a natural progression, as Kirk has steadily increased his hours of work and knowledge of the farm over his years of growing up here.   As he takes on more decision making responsibilities and work, Kirk will be taking over his uncle's share of the farm as Bob is phasing into retirement.  Having farmed for decades, Bob will remain in his family's home that resides next to the milking barn and plans to stay involved, working a reduced number of hours per week.  We're looking forward to the years to come and are thankful that a new generation is at the helm to help steer the farm well as we navigate future transitions.
The generations: Kirk, Kathie, Rick and Bob

  1. Our Dolphins Flag is constructed of polyester, measures 3x5 feet, and has two metal grommets for attaching to a traditional flagpole, tailgate pole, or our 6' aluminum flagpole. The perimeter of our Dolphins Flag is double stitched and the Officially Licensed NFL Miami Dolphins team logos are dye sublimated into the flag so they won't peel. Due to its large size, this flag is also perfect to hang in your game room, sports room, office, or kids room.

  3. È interessante notare che il nuovo Boca Juniors Maglia introduce un design che trae ispirazione dalla camicia casa. Prevalentemente bianco, vanta un giallo e un cerchio della marina sulla parte anteriore, appassire ex tra cui il logo dello sponsor. Una linea blu scuro corre lungo ogni lato della camicia Boca Juniors 2016-2017 distanza, così come intorno alla parte posteriore del collare.maglie calcio poco prezzo,
