You might recognize this sweet family from TV – they’re featured in one of our most recent television ads. The Fisher Family and their 150 dairy cows have been making milk for Oakhurst for over 17 years. They’ll tell you that they’re proud to be an Oakhurst producer – but really it’s Oakhurst that’s proud to distribute fresh, healthy milk from Fisher Farm.
Farming at Fisher Farm is a complete family affair. Alden Fisher (dad) runs the farm and is the fourth generation of his family to do so. His wife, Lisa, helps him out, along with his mother, Alma, and daughters Carmen and April. Carmen’s husband is also a dairy farmer at fellow Oakhurst producer R.E. Hemond’s Farm. And April’s daughters, Emma and Aaliyah, enjoy helping out on the farm as well. If they decide to take it over someday, they’ll be the sixth generation of Fisher farmers! Pretty cool, huh?
It’s always so much fun to visit our family farms and get to talk and interact with the beautiful cows that produce Oakhurst milk. Running a family farm is a tough, tough job – but all the farmers tell us it’s #SoWorthIt.
Thank you family farmers for giving us all the opportunity to drink fresh, healthy, happy-cow milk!
