Our Story

Our story begins with Friedrich and Annie Wölfli (Wolfley) who were Swiss immigrants to the United States. They settled in Star Valley, Wyoming around 1885 and began dairy farming along with many of other settlers to the area. Star Valley was at one time nicknamed "Little Switzerland" because of the many Swiss immigrants and the reminiscent topography and climate of the Alps.

 

Many of these early Star Valley Swiss dairymen brought with them the art of making Swiss cheese, which became Star Valley's world-famous product and a subsequent claim to fame.

 

Fred and Annie passed along their love of God, family and farming to many of their descendants, including their great-great grandson, Jody Shumway.

Five Generations Later

We started farming in 1981 and together raised our eight children on the farm. Over the years we have loved the farm life and being in Star Valley, Wyoming. Our roots run deep here, both of us being fifth-gerneation Wyomingites. Farming also has an important place in our family's heritage, Jody being a fifth-generation dairyman. 

 

Most of our farming career has been in the dairy industry. We continue to love working our farm and are now joined by some of our children who share in the family business. They, too, have a desire to carry on our family's rich tradition of farming in beautiful Star Valley, Wyoming.

Our Mission

 

We are dedicated to producing high quality, farm-fresh products and giving our customers a nostalgic experience by sharing with them our love and heritage of farming.

Our Goal

Our goal is not only to create high quality, farm-fresh products, but to also make our customers who visit the farm feel as if they have momentarily stepped back in time. A time when things were a little more simple and slow-paced.

 

So enjoy farm-fresh products made by a family who takes great pride and stewardship in producing them! And if you have the chance, come on down and visit us on our family farm!
