CHS Farm Family of the Year

The Hein Family
Crown Point, Ind.

EJ Dairies, with locations in Crown Point and Francesville, Ind., is a fourth-generation family farm that bought its first registered Holstein in 1948. For years the farm has proudly leased dairy animals to 4-H members so local kids can show at the county farm.

Six members of the family have attended Purdue University. Maintaining close ties to the university, the family has hosted Purdue University Veterinary School tours and invited the Purdue Dairy Challenge Team to train on its farm.
