Living in an agricultural state like Idaho makes it easy to know where your food comes from and pack in good nutrition through these home-grown foods. Dairy is no different, and the Treasure Valley is surrounded by dairy farms.

Meet The Nederends, a Local Idaho Dairy Farming Family Behind Your Favorite Dairy Treats

The Nederend family dairy near Marsing, Idaho, is run by brothers John and Hans Nederend, third-generation dairy farmers.

Living by their grandfather, Hans Nederland Sr.'s, motto to "take good care of your cows and they will take care of you," John and Hans utilize every member of their large family to run the two dairies that make up the Nederend enterprise. Both have four children who help work the dairy in the early mornings and late afternoons when not in school.

In 1999, John and Hans's father, Hans Nederend Jr., moved the family and its dairy operation from California to the current Marsing location, where the brothers have run day-to-day operations since 2008.

Their milk quality is in the top 1% of industry standards, which they've achieved by "pampering" their cows at what they call "an all-inclusive resort for cows." These cows spend their time on white desert blow sand cleaned twice daily and have access to a full-time veterinarian and nutritionist.

You can visit the Nederend dairy and family and meet the cows for yourself!

They welcome guests and groups of all sizes to come tour their Marsing farm; just email John ahead of time. Contact the farm at this email, nederendfarms@gmail.com
