Munk Family farms is the new name for Kendlith Munk Farms.
We are located in Amalga Utah, over looking the Bear River and the Wellsville Mountain Range.
We are just moving into the 4th generation of farming. Cyril Munk started his farm in Benson years ago. Kendlith Munk his son kept the farm going. He built a dairy Barn in Amalga, just over the river from where his fathers place was. Kens two sons Shane and Sid both stayed on the farm and continued to make improvements.
In 2010 we started to build a new 40 cow rotary dairy. In the summer of 2011 we started milking in there new barn. It has been a wonderful improvement. Now the next generation has more opportunity's in the Dairy industry.
Shane and his wife Tammy have two daughters, Shanna and Kristol and one son Jason. Jason graduated from USU in Dairy sciences and the Herdsman program. He is staying on the farm with his wife Kylee.
