In the early 1900’s when GSBG was still called Brown Bulb Ranch, James Brown (company founder) was looking for the most ideal ways to fertilize the fields where he grew his crops. In an effort to obtain clean weed free manure for fertilizing the bulb fields, James purchased a herd of Guernsey dairy cattle. In doing so he also opened a successful dairy. Milk products including Ice Cream were sold by the ‘Moo Cow Dairy’ from 1919 to 1957. Distribution went as far as Chicago on the Southern Pacific Railroad, with distribution of the famous ice cream in four countries. Locally in the Monterey Bay Area, there were 11 retail ‘soda fountains’ serving Moo Cow Dairy products.
