Why Support Local Farms?
In a unique twist of fate the Nehrig family traded
farmland in Penn Hills (home to Turner’s processing
facility) for their current farmstead in Indiana
They spent two days moving their herd approximately
30 miles to the new location in 1898 and has been
farming this land ever since.
With 3 generations on the farm today, the youngest
of which is the 6th generation to be on
the farm, the Nehrig family farm lies amongst
beautiful sun-kissed, rolling hills.
The Nehrig family milks their herd of 100
cows, mostly Holsteins with a few Jersey cows, twice
a day at approximately 5:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
