You are invited you to the farm! South Dakota Farm Families and the Nussbaum family, will be hosting an open house at Cottonwood Ridge Dairy this Saturday, July 12 from 10:00am to 1:00pm.

The free, family-friendly event will provide guests with an opportunity to see first-hand the new technology being used in the industry and where the dairy products they enjoy get their start.

Guests will have the chance to tour the newly built dairy barn and a free hamburger meal will be served. Many kids activities will also be available.

The Nussbaum family was thinking of the future when they built their new, environmentally friendly, robotic milking barn.  Building a new barn ensures that the next generation on this farm can join the family business.
