Long Description:
From the Gustafson Farm website: "Gustafson’s Dairy started in the early 1900’s when Mama & Papa Gus bought one cow named Buttercup. She provided milk for their six children and nearby neighbors. Her neighbors began asking to buy milk and butter, so Mama Gus bought more cows. She started churning butter in a small building in her backyard until 1925, when the City of Green Cove Springs asked the Gustafson family to move their cows because they were wandering in the City. In 1925, the Dairy moved to its present location, and the rest is history."

All Gustafson dairy products have a label with a picture of Frank and Agnes Gustafson, the husband-and-wife founders of the dairy who are also known as Mama and Papa Gus.
