It remains in the family, owned and operated by Otto’s son, Glenn and his wife, Debbie. In the early 60’s, Otto and Adeline operated a 60-cow dairy barn, along with range cattle, pigs, chickens and flood irrigation in the Pashley area. Otto and Adeline moved to the city in 1967 and continued to farm while building a new house along the river.
