Boadwine Farms near Baltic, SD has been a family homestead since 1874.  The dairy farm is currently operated by Lynn, 4th generation, along with his wife Trish and their sons Riley and Patrick.  The century-old farm has seen many changes as it transformed into a modern dairy. Today, Boadwine Farms has 2,100 Holstein cows that they milk three times a day.  They also grow corn and alfalfa which is used to feed their cows on the dairy.
