Why Support Local Farms?
Carr Family – Lone Oak Farms
Three generations of the Carr family
currently work on their slice of pastoral paradise
in Westmoreland County, aptly called Lone Oak
Farms. The Carr family founded their farm
in 1959 and began shipping milk to Turner’s that
same year. Last year they celebrated their 50th
Anniversary of partnership with Turner’s!
As you travel down Lone Oak Farms winding driveway
you notice the original red brick farm house, the
vast rolling fields of corn, soy, and alfalfa, and
the four towering silos that have come to define the
landscape of Western PA farming communities. You
catch yourself taken in by the beauty of the area.
A Pennsylvania Dairy of Distinction Award
Winner, the Carr family farms 720 acres of corn,
alfalfa, and soy beans while milking 180 beautiful
Holstein cows everyday.
The Carrs have recently finished completion of a
state of the art milking parlor and barn and cow
