We were driving along Hwy 33 in Osborn, Missouri when it came into view. A tower standing a 100-ft or so tall, it’s bright white paint a stark contrast against the baby blue sky. In bold, black letters down the side of the tower we could make out the letters “M I L K.”
It’s here that we talked with Matt Shatto about his family’s journey of building their small dairy farm, Shatto Milk Company, into a successful multi-faceted farm-to-market business…and becoming one of the Midwest’s most beloved dairies along the way. Join us as we chat about the day they decided to cut the cord with their co-op, how they’ve expanded their product line to include award-winning cheeses, ice creams and flavored milks (root beer milk anyone?), and how they reincarnated the milk man with their home delivery service – a business model that not only includes their products, but meats and produce from other local farmers as well.
Afterward, we challenge you to check out ShattoMilk.com and try not to drool.
