Jack de Jong comes to us born and raised on a dairy farm in Hanford, CA. He is the proud owner of River Ranch Farms LLC, which has been in operation for 25 years. Jack had always been in and around the agriculture industry growing up, so it was only a matter of time that he would start his own journey in a career he had always been passionate about. Being influenced to strive for success has ultimately given him the drive to grow his business beyond just a "little old dairy."
Jack graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 1995 with a major in Dairy Science and a minor in Ag Business. This not only gave him the knowledge to care for his cows, but also the skill to run a smooth business. River Ranch Dairy started as a partnership between himself and his father, John de Jong. Jack worked alongside his father John for 15 years, and for the last 10 years has taken River Ranch Dairy over himself. As of recently, they have even expanded into farming almonds and blueberries! With any new beginning, you're bound to have some struggles at first, but Jack saw the opportunity to grow and knew right away he was making the right decision for his family and his farm.
