The last days of the Flory dairy farm

By Richard Gwin · February 8, 2012 · Comment on this

Randy Flory, 57 of Lone Star, has been milking cows all his life. But times have changed and the price to produce milk has increased to the point where the family - which owns one of the last dairy farms in Douglas County - is getting out of the milking business. Instead, it will raise cows for another farm in Arizona.

My grandfather had a small dairy in Miami county, not sure he ever turned a profit on it. Sad to hear this, but it's good he can stay in business.

I appreciated Randy hosting the Douglas County Food Policy Council on their tour of his farm last year. It is inspiring to see a family who has put so much heart and soul into agriculture in Douglas County. Thanks to the Flory's, and I hope your new venture is prosperous.
