To: Saturday, August 4th, 2018

Serosun Farms has teamed up with the Elgin History Museum to bring you an exciting documentary!


On Saturday August 4th Serosun Farms is excited to be hosting a screening of the Elgin History Museum’s most recent documentary, Dairies to Prairies. The film tells the story of Egin’s dairy heritage. Local farmers began shipping milk before the civil war. Soon the Elgin Board of Trade was established, setting dairy prices for most of the United States for more than 40 years. Elgin was home to dozens of dairies including Gail Borden’s company, famous for its Eagle Brand condensed milk. The documentary also explores how these dairy farmers have come under pressure from suburban development, modern day agricultural and efforts to restore the natural prairie.
