Rick Davis began a partnership with his dad in February, 1982, in the same barn that is still used in Middlebury Center. In 2003 Rick and his wife, Janelle, bought the rest of the farm and began shipping with Middlebury. The Davises have been registered with the Holstein Association since 1996. They do their own breeding. They are currently milking 80 cows in a tie-stall barn.
Rick and Janelle have 5 grown children, two grandchildren, and two grandchildren on the way. Their daughter, Laureen, is currently working full time on the farm, along with some help from her husband, Drew.
Rick became a board member in 2012 and has been VP since 2019.
