Dairy Farms is located in the mountains of southwest Virginia and has been in the family
for more than 200 years. Our grandfather, James Schultz Huffard, Sr., acquired
Registered Jerseys in 1929. His philosophy of breeding for profitable production
and sound, functional type continues today at Schultz Jerseys.
In 2008, James S.
Huffard III was named AJCA Master Breeder. Click here to

Dairy Farms is a long-time contributor to Project Equity, marking 30 years of
continuous contributions to the program in 2010. In keeping with our belief in
our product, we joined forces with fellow Jersey breeder, Joey Blankenship, and
his uncle, Dan Slemp, to bottle All-Jersey milk at Duchess Dairy. We purchased
the dairy in Rural Retreat, VA, in December 2009 and began bottling in January
2010. Click here to visit the Duchess Dairy website.
