The Gus Reuble farm is an excellent example of the growth and changes involved in the dairy industry on Whidbey Island. In 1948, Darigold transitioned from smaller 10 gallon cans to large bulk tanks. This change put many small dairies out of business; however, the Reuble farm opted to expand. They added to their barn to accommodate 62 cows for milking in order to meet the capacity of the larger bulk tanks.
