The McCune Family
In 1880, Chuck McCune’s great grandfather began McCune Dairy Farm. Back then, it took horsepower on four legs (horses) to power a dairy.
Today’s dairy farm uses a different kind of horsepower: diesel-powered tractors, automatic silo unloaders, and refrigerated milk tanks. What hasn’t changed on the dairy is the McCune’s commitment to care for their cows. The McCune’s dairy cows are healthy and well cared for in order to produce pure, wholesome milk.
Every day, Chuck and his son Chase feed and milk the cows, grow and harvest the crops, and maintain and repair the dairy’s equipment. The McCunes have a fleet of older tractors they restore and repair themselves. They are motivated by a personal challenge to see how long they can keep a tractor working on the dairy. It’s one of the many ways they support sustainability.
The McCunes believe in giving back to their community. Each year, they host the Cowabunga Classic, a fundraiser for local cancer support organizations that also gives the community an opportunity to learn about their family farm.
The McCune Dairy Farm has a long history of producing quality milk. In the future, Chuck and his wife Cathy plan to pass the dairy farm to their son, Chase.
