Southview Farm is serious about investing in the future. For more than 50 years, the VanArsdale family has worked to continuously improve, committing every day to their cows, their farm and the consumers who depend on their milk.
Jamie VanArsdale took over the farm from his late father Jim in the late 1990s, and now as Jamie enters retirement a new generation has entered the fold. Dan and Nate Osborn and their families are proud to carry on the Southview Farm legacy as they continue to guide the day-to-day operations.
Southview Farm has a long history of progressive management, investing in innovative technologies and conservation practices on the 1,500-cow farm. Being involved with Craigs Station Creamery has given the dairy an opportunity to invest again, this time in the wholesome, high-quality dairy ingredients customers are looking for. Jamie says the plant also gives the farm an opportunity to learn best practices from other farm families involved and invest in the future of the industry as a whole.
“It’s always good to work with our neighbors and we enjoy learning about other operations,” Jamie says.
