Meet a Farmer

Dairy farmers are people just like you.  Our families just happen to love cows!  You can learn more by visiting http://www.dairyfarmingtoday.org.

Life on a dairy farm

Life on a farm is not easy. It requires an incredible work ethic, savvy business skills, and “knowing cows.” Farms today don’t look like they did 30 years ago. You might be surprised at the technology applied to help the cows make nutritious milk. Dairy farmers live on or near the land that their families have farmed (for generations, in many cases). We understand the importance of protecting our natural resources. We depend on this land for our business and our quality of life.

  3. Looking for Indiana cheese makers who would be interested in participating in a wine and cheese tasting event next June, in Winchester, IN. We just held our first annual June Fest event and it was a huge success with 131 classic cars, sanctioned and amatuer chili cook-offs, 30 local artisan booths, multiple food, drink and dessert booths, beer tent, and wine, cheese and chocolate tasting. All our cheese had to be purchased this year because we could not get local cheesemaker participation. Next year we would like to promote and sell local cheeses only if possible. Please contact Jean at email italy265@hotmail.com if interested.
