In 1973 Larry and Mary Ann began the Lar-Ann Dairy Farm in rural Martinsburg, which they owned and operated for 26 years. Then in 1999 the farm changed to Kulp Family Dairy LLC, and is currently owned and operated by their son, Phil and his family.
Larry served on the Spring Cove School Board and was the cove representative for the Greater Altoona Career & Technology Center. For eight years he served as a corporate board member for Land O'Lakes and during his many years of farming, earned the Master Farmer Award. He has continued to support the family farm throughout the years, helping with various agricultural promotions and has always been a tremendous advocate for dairy farming.
He was an incredibly generous, loving and caring person, who always placed God, family and others before himself. Larry at all times was kind hearted and supportive, a true contagious encourager.
