Producing milk on the natural side has been a long standing tradition for the Stueve family. Lloyd’s great-grandfather began farming in America in 1837. "I’ve had the privilege, the heritage of growing up in a farming background," Lloyd said.
Today, on the Stueve ranch nestled on the upslope of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Lloyd, his wife Nancy and their four children are continuing their family’s legacy of careful stewardship, producing organic milk from pastured cows.
"We believe in working with the organic aspect—as natural as possible," says Lloyd. "You can’t improve on mother nature."
