MEET OUR FARMERS


At United Dairy, we are fortunate to be involved in a strong relationship with over 300 local family owned and operated dairy farms.  Here at United Dairy we pride ourselves with buying from local farms to help keep the local economy strong and local people employed.  The majority of the money that a Dairy Farmer spends stays in the local community.  Farms that sell their milk to United commit to produce a high quality, wholesome product, while being good stewards of the land and having pride in the health and welfare of their animals.

Meet Ohio Dairy Farmers

Ken and Marilyn Ruprecht and their family have been dairy farming for 37 years.  They are committed to providing quality, responsible care to their animals because they know it’s the right thing to do for today’s consumers and is the legacy they want to leave for their children and grandchildren.  They know that strong farming values are what keep Ohio’s rural communities vibrant.  Ken and Marilyn love volunteering their service on a variety of community and agricultural boards.
