First Union National Bank believes “The Family Farm is the Backbone of Agriculture.” On behalf of all dairy farmers, we are
pleased to salute the success of Skull Hill Farm in Berks County, PA. The Zimmerman family of Berks County, sitting before their newly
constructed 390 cow facility, have been in the dairy business beginning with Charles’ grandparents nearly 70 years ago. The original farm
was passed to Charles’ father Larry and his uncle Mark. Charles and Linda purchased the farm from his parents, Larry and Marilyn, in
1987. The Zimmermans currently farm 900 acres and milk 350 cows, three times a day. Charles is responsible for the cow management;
Linda is responsible for the accounting; Charles, Jr. does the feeding and field work; Larry does the field work; and Ashley works with the
calves and breeding. Along with the family, they have four part-time employees for whom they are thankful.
