Mariah is Pat and Sharlene's youngest daughter and farms full-time with them. Her main roles are caring for the cows, gathering delivery route orders, and managing Autumnwood Farm social media. Milking cows, caring for cow health and comfort, and keeping accurate herd records are important to have the content and healthy cows that provide your TASTY milk! 

Favorite Product: Chocolate Milk




Luke, Pat and Sharlene's oldest son, makes the majority of the crops decisions on the farm. Maintaining a nutritious diet for the cows to produce TASTY milk starts with healthy soil and flourishing crops. As a full-time agronomist, Luke is a key component in the health of the cows that provide the milk on your table through his care of the land and all that grows from it.

Darby & Rick


Darby and Rick's main job is to turn raw milk into low-temperature pasteurized TASTY milk. Generally, after pasteurizing, the milk is sent through the homogenizer and chiller before getting to the holding tank. The milk is then ready to be bottled by our capper. Darby also uses her creativity to create and manage the website.

Hanna & Peyton

Filler and Capper Operator

Making sure the bottles are spotless and safe is Hanna's main job. She operates our bottle washer every day to clean half gallons, quarts, and pints. 

The clean bottles then make their way down the conveyer to the next machine where they are filled with TASTY milk and capped. Peyton makes sure every bottle is perfect before it is moved into the cooler where it will stay until it is delivered the next day.
