Food: One of region’s last family dairies hopes retail will help bottom line

When his father and uncles ceased their milking operation on the family dairy farm in 1972, Tim Iwig embarked on his own one-boy fresh-milk enterprise. Then only 12 or 13, he kept several heifers, milked them daily and recruited customers.
