(WFRV) – Soaring Eagle Dairy in Newton is a family farm, home to 1,300 cows.

In 1997, Jim and Sandie Fitzgerald started Soaring Eagle Dairy after farming their entire life.

It was a change from a 60-cow operation to about 450 cows at the time, a huge jump in numbers for them.

That growth allowed four of the next generation to join the business.

In this segment, we hear why the family is passionate about sharing their story with consumers.
