Dairy

Hatcher

For five generations, the Hatcher family has been farming in College Grove, TN. They are committed to their core values of faith, quality, cooperation, integrity and stewardship, which were handed down by their forefathers over 175 years ago and have since turned into valued traditions. Dairies in the Southeast have been decreasing in numbers rapidly over the last several years. It has become increasingly difficult to make a living in the dairy business due to rising input costs like fuel, fertilizer and feed, plus the pressure of encroaching development and suburbanization. Around 2005, the Hatcher Family decided to try something new and innovative as a way to keep dairy processing alive and profitable: their idea was to process and pasteurize their own milk. After tremendous community support, and plenty of planning and hard work, they had their store grand opening June 11th, 2007 and have been supplying us at Porter Road Butcher with the freshest and richest dairy every since we opened.
