Mariah is Pat and Sharlene's youngest daughter and farms full-time with them. Her main roles are caring for the cows and managing Autumnwood Farm social media.

Luke 

Farmer

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

Pasteurizers 

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, Molly. Darby also uses her creativity to make content for Autumnwood Farm social media.

Sarah & Molly

Filler and Capper Operator

Making sure the bottles are spotless and safe is Sarah'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. Molly makes sure every bottle is perfect before it is moved into the cooler where it will stay until it is delivered the next day.
