It all started in 1986 when a young boy married a dairy girl right off the farm. This young couple built a new little red barn, and from there, a legacy began. Together the two of them bought a few cows and started milking them. It wasn’t long before they had more milk than they needed. They started selling to friends and family.
Expanding an Idea!
In 2002 we became certified to sell Raw milk and named our small business Finney Farm. Opening Finney Farm has paved the way for us to sell our quality products to the public.
Our Swiss Cows
After going to the Big World Dairy Expo in Wisconsin in 2004, we decided we wanted to get some Brown Swiss cattle so we could have the best milk possible. This change took time. We drove to Idaho soon after and started with a modest herd of five Brown Swiss cows.
After seeing and tasting the difference, we knew five cows was just not enough. We slowly increased the herd with the best quality stock.
The Future is Bright
By 2016 our herd had grown to about 50 cows! With that many cows giving us such rich milk it was only logical to share some more. In 2016 we built a cheese plant so we could start selling all across southern Utah.
All of this started with one family cow, a little red barn, and the desire to make the best dairy products for our family. Now we want to share the best of our farm with you!
The Future is Bright
In the fall of 2017, we were able to open a second store location in New Harmony Utah. We are growing and will continue to provide quality RAW milk, cheese, and other dairy products into the future. Now you can find our products in four locations.
Meet Our Cows
The Brown Swiss cow originally came from Switzerland and is genetically traced back further than any other cattle breed. They have some great genetic properties and a higher casein content with a smaller curd giving them the best-tasting milk. Brown Swiss cattle have a perfect and consistent fat to protein ratio. Because of this, we can make the best cheese. They are big, broad cows that have an average lactation period of 13 years. Right now at Finney Farms we are milking 52 cows and have 35 heifers. All of these cows are grass fed because we want to keep them healthy and producing the finest product for you! What you put in the cow is what comes out, so we only use the best!
