Another Small Farm

People in my family are pretty private, so I doubt I could ever get any of them to make a video promoting their farm.  But if you wonder what the farm where we get our pork and milk and a lot of other food from is like, here’s a family farm that’s a lot like it.  Same breed of cows, and even the Oliver tractor looks familiar.  Same problem, too, of trying to make a living when the farmer’s share of the consumer’s dollar keeps shrinking.  We’ve even talked about making cheese, but as you can probably tell by the video, that’s not a simple or cheap endeavor, especially with all the regulations these days.

They’ve got a really nice website too: Laurel Valley Creamery.
