Stap Dairy is a multigenerational dairy farm family located in Pine Bush and is farmed by the Stap family; Bob, Stacey, Liz, Cassie, Becky and Garrett. In 1984, Bob Stap started dairy farming and then the family purchased their current farm which consists of 150 acres and began milking in this facility on April 21, 2005, where they milk 90+ Holsteins in the free stall/parlor set up. For their crops to feed their cows they retn 400 additional acres. In the beginning of 2018, Stap's added a processing plant to their main barn. They also added a small multi-breed herd for their farm fresh, pasteurized cream line milk. This past June the farm fresh pasteurized cream line milk became available. It is set up so consumers can purchase milk and view the processing.
