Half Full Dairy (formerly known as Hourigan’s Dairy Farm) is home to 1200 milking-age Holsteins and 1200 calves. In addition, Half Full Dairy also grows corn, soybeans, wheat, and hay crops. The farm employs 42 people.
Half Full Dairy produces A-2 milk for Byrne Dairy. Byrne Dairy discovered that many individuals have trouble digesting regular milk, which contains both A-1 and A-2 proteins. But most people can handle milk that only contains the A-2 protein.
The Hourigan family also runs the Bailiwick Market & Café, employing 30 people. At the market and café, you’ll find produce grown at the farm: from pumpkins to sweet corn, green beans to sunflowers, plus other locally sourced food.
