David Metzler and his wife, Lucille, along with their six children, ranging in age from 24 to 8, live on a 125-cow dairy farm two miles from the PA Grand Canyon. They have been with Middlebury Co-op since 1999. In 2017 they built a poultry breeder barn to generate additional income. In addition to raising crops for the dairy they also raise green beans for Hanover Foods. In 2020 they transitioned from a tie stall barn to a free stall facility. They love farm life, and the opportunity to work and learn together as a family. David has been a board member since 2016 and has been the board President since 2020.
