BARB SHATTO runs the Shatto Milk Company with her husband, Leroy. She grew up on a family farm, and even though she has a Master’s degree in Health Services Administration and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, she always knew that the farm was the place for her.

SHATTO MILK COMPANY is a small family-owned and operated dairy farm, with 350 Holstein cows, located just north of the Kansas City metropolitan area. Their family has been farming there for more than 100 years and began a dairy farm more than 80 years ago. In June 2003 they began processing their own milk, on the farm. They decided to bottle their own milk, in glass bottles, for the purpose of providing customers with the freshest and best tasting dairy products possible.

They offer home delivery and have a farm store, where they sell 12 flavors of milk, and also produce their own cheese, ice cream and butter. Tours of their operation are conducted regularly and other special events are scheduled the year.
