Strong Women Run the Pine River Dairy

Strong Women Run the Pine River Dairy

The Pine River Dairy in Manitowoc is well-known in the dairy industry for its expertise in crafting butter and butter blends. One interesting fact about this successful dairy is that of the 20 employees, only 3 are men. This small family dairy churns out high-quality products and is proudly run and operated by women. Laurie Olm, President of the Pine River Dairy said, “I’m very happy that my parents kept the business going to hand it down to us girls.” Olm did face a few skeptics when she stepped up as President but has proven to be highly successful since she took over the family business. The Pine River Dairy recently won Best of Class at the World Cheese and Butter Contest for their Cinnamon-Honey butter.
