Brown Family Dairy: Life on the Farm

Brown Family Dairy wasn’t made overnight. It took years of hard work to get the business to where it is now. This is as real as a family business gets. From the second you set foot on the farm, you are surrounded by a sense of family togetherness.

Billy Ray and Paula Brown have been running Brown Dairy Farm since 2009 in the Oxford community. High school sweethearts Paula and Billy Ray have been married 16 years, and have three children.

Billy Ray grew up with a farming background but neither of them had any idea about how to run a dairy farm. In the beginning years of their marriage, Paula was a school teacher and Billy Ray worked for the city. However, Billy Ray always had the desire to work on a farm. Three children kept their expenses very high, but they slowly built the farm by saving any extra money they had.

Billy Ray Brown sought out for advice from surrounding areas and other farms, but he found negativity and skepticism.

“One man said, ‘Son, I believe you have lost your mind,’” Brown said. An easygoing man, Brown wasn’t deterred.

Years later those people who didn’t believe in him are eating their words. Brown Family Dairy is now considered the local milk of the Oxford community and surrounding areas. You can catch Billy Ray’s brother, Shane, dropping off their Dairy in Oxford at Larson’s Cashsaver, Lindsey Chevron, Living Foods, Little Johns’s and The Barn.
