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.

California Dreaming, the Upland Way

City of Upland, CA

The City of Upland is nestled in the foothills of California’s ruggedly beautiful San Bernardino County. The city is renowned for countless reasons – whether it is the surrounding natural beauty of witnessing Mt. San Antonio’s snowcapped peaks in the winter, or the appreciation of strolling through a historical neighborhood under a canopy of mature Camphor street trees dotted with rock curbs and picturesque 100-year old Victorians and American Bungalow homes. Perhaps it is when you realize that driving on Historic Route 66, which bifurcates Upland, you are not simply on another road, but actually on a piece of Americana.
