Lynn Dairy, Inc.

Walter Schwantes purchased Lynn Dairy in 1949. At that time, the plant had a daily intake of 13,000 pounds of raw milk and a daily production of 1,300 pounds of cheese. In 1956, William W. Schwantes became president of the company upon the death of his father.

Many changes in the dairy industry, including the incorporation of bulk milk tanks on the farms, gave the opportunity for the dairy farmers to increase their production. Competitive milk pricing enabled Lynn Dairy to grow with the times. William L. Schwantes assumed responsibility as company president after the retirement of his father in 1985. Working under the third generation of the family name, Lynn Dairy continued expanding and increasing production.

Lynn Dairy now brings in around 1,700,000 pounds of milk a day and cheese production is around 170,000 pounds per day. Lynn Dairy has won numerous awards over the years because of their top quality and flavor. There is a master cheese maker at Lynn Dairy to ensure the best product possible. Lynn Dairy continuously tries to improve their products and make changes when necessary. There are over twenty different flavors of cheese available from Lynn Dairy, with more coming. This family owned company takes time to care for their customers and prides themselves on their hard-work and dedication to the industry.
