Their path into the dairy industry is certainly unorthodox, but the Walkers have been dairy farming now for nearly 30 years. Formerly of the timber business, Douglas Walker prides himself on his unique approach to the way they conduct their business, as they had no preconceived notions of how "things were always done" in the industry. Above all else, the Walkers emphasize milk quality.
Mr. Walker is a firm believer in giving back and currently serves on SMI's Board of Directors, Transportation Committee, and chairs the Supply Committee. He also serves as a director for Farm Credit of NW Florida and is involved in Jefferson County Cattlemen's Association.
