A Multi-Generational Tradition

Minerva Dairy

When one thinks of the history of small family farms in the United States, one imagines hardworking family members committed to a particular way of life as much as making a living. Most Americans view family farms as being central to an identity rich in heritage and tradition. And although modern farming technologies may have overtaken older ways of doing things, there is one dairy farm in Ohio that holds true to its traditional roots. Minerva Dairy, entering into its sixth generation of being family-owned-and-managed, takes pride in producing quality butter and cheese.

83 Years and Still Trucking

Hines Trucking

J.D. & Billy Hines Trucking was established by J.D. Hines in 1936 in the humblest of beginnings. With one truck, the company served the Prescott region offering log, lumber, and gravel hauling. By 1969, J.D. Hines partnered with his son, Billy Hines, investing in additional equipment as the company grew. In 1976, this father-son partnership was incorporated into its current company name, often referred to as HTI.

What separates propane from other energy sources like gasoline, diesel, and electricity, are its portable convenience, efficiency, safety, affordability, abundance, and its reduced risks of spills and soil contamination. But perhaps more importantly, propane itself is not a greenhouse gas and, if accidentally released into the atmosphere before being burned, will not affect it – an important consideration when considering environmental impacts.
