C-R View Dairy
C-R View Dairy is a true family farm located in Northwest Illinois on over 645 acres and has been certified organic with Oregon Tilth since 2002.
C-R View Dairy is located in Northwest Illinois and is family-operated and owned. We have been certified organic since 2002 and sell our milk to Organic Valley in LaFarge, WI. Our dairy was only the second dairy farm certified organic in the state of Illinois!
We are truly a family farm. We have four children, ages 20,18,16,14 who all help on the farm. Our oldest daughter is in college now, majoring in Dairy Science, and we have 18 & 14 year old sons, and 16 year old daughter. Homesteaded in 1861 by my husband’s great-great-great-grandfather and his son, we are the sixth generation Westaby son to farm this land. It is a direct father to son lineage farming this original farm. We live in the house his great-grandfather built, and milk in the original barn (with additions)!
Our kids and we are the only employees on this farm. We use soil balancing, cover crops, and cultivating to control weeds and rotovate the land, no deep plowing or no-till. We believe we are the care-takers of this land that we are allowed to live on still.
Owners: Delmar and Theresa Westaby, Stockton, IL
