THE COMMUNITY & GAR-LIN Dairy
We are active leaders in local, state, and national organizations. Our involvement over the years has included Southeast Minnesota Ag Alliance, Minnesota Milk Producers Association, US Dairy Industry’s Sustainability Council, City of Eyota-Planning and Zoning, US Dairy Forage Research Center Advisory Board, Farm Bureau, and MFA (midwest forage association). We also continue to participate in community events like Olmsted County Fair Birth Center and hosted RochesterFest Breakfast on the Farm in 1995 and 2012.
As the second-largest employer in Eyota, we are committed to creating local jobs as an employer and a contractor to our vendors. We are a technology and education leader in animal care and science, and so much more creating a thriving work environment.
Part of our giving back within the community is our involvement with youth, including teaching Ag in the Classroom programs to school-aged children, engaging students and adults in learning dairy opportunities that are fun and exciting across a range of different levels. As a community-minded business, we host events and farm tours, provide cows for the Olmsted County Fair Birth Center and more. Our safety training for employees is also part of creating a work environment that is not only sustainable but safety-minded.
