Behind Every Business is a Good Story
Wallace & Ida Nash began milking cows in 1929 in central California as a family farm with their three kids. Milk was consumed by the family and the rest was sold as a way to generate income. Only three years after starting, the cows got sick and Wallace was forced to start all over in the middle of the Great Depression. Perseverance was and still is the name of the game.
Growth and Expansion
In 1979, Howard became ill leaving the future of the farm up-in-the-air. His son, Steve, stepped up to the challenge at 20 years old taking over the daily operations of the farm. During the next 2 decades, Steve would oversee the herd expand from 200 to 1,200 cows while also racking up numerous awards for production and quality in the competitive central California market.
