The Bos family have a long standing foot hold in the farming business, giving them the heart and soul to grow a successful, ethical dairy operation. <strong>Patrick and Cherylynn Bos</strong> began their chapter of farming immediately after being married at the young age of 22. They both loved farming and all that went with it: the work, land, animals and space. They wanted a farming lifestyle for themselves and their future family. <a href="/media/original_images/thebosfamily01-e1411435949831.jpg"><img class="alignright size-full wp-image-4241" src="/media/original_images/thebosfamily01-e1411435949831.jpg" alt="thebosfamily01" width="200" height="111" /></a> Patrick’s parents allowed Patrick and Cherylynn to farm alongside them in the early years on the family land and were very supportive as they tried to work out the farm finances and change the farm in ways to suit their personal goals. They purchased their first milking goats in 1999 and began milking for a Ponoka-based processing company. In 2004 this plant closed. As a result the Bos family decided to take control of their own future: they built a goat milk and cheese processing facility on the farm property. Today they are pleased to have become a dominant Alberta supplier of goat milk products. They have been working alongside a B.C. based dairy company to produce goat milk and cheese products from their own herd of 400 goats and that of four other area farms. In 2012, the Boss’ decided to take another big step: to upgrade their facility and equipment to allow for the production of organic cow’s milk and creams. <a href="/media/original_images/rockridgebarn-e1411435907227.jpg"><img class="alignleft size-full wp-image-4243" src="/media/original_images/rockridgebarn-e1411435907227.jpg" alt="rockridgebarn" width="200" height="133" /></a><a href="/media/original_images/milkbottling-e1411435877210.jpg"><img class="alignleft wp-image-4240 size-full" src="/media/original_images/milkbottling-e1411435877210.jpg" alt="milkbottling" width="200" height="133" /></a>         We are so proud to have such an friendly relationship with The Bos Family!!
