Constantine, Mich., bills itself as the “seed corn capital of the world,” producing more than 10% of the United States’ supply. But this Southwest Michigan town hasn’t completely “gone to seed.” It also lays claim to a dairy processing powerhouse operated by the Novi, Mich.-based Michigan Milk Producers Association (MMPA).

The plant traces its roots back to 1915, when it commenced operation as Constantine Cooperative Creamery. MMPA assumed ownership when the creamery merged with it in 1980.
