While the owners of Honey Creek Dairy, west of Edgewood, are using state-of-the-art equipment for their dairy operation, they also have a solid base in cow comfort that began from generations of dairymen who farmed before them.

Dan Venteicher, along with his wife, Jamie, and his twin brother, Don, are fourth-generation owners of the farm. It was begun by Dan and Don’s great-grandfather, Anton, in 1948, continued by their grandfather, Paul, then by their father Richard, and uncle Dave.
