I would never admit to knowing anything about the dairy industry. It seems simple to me, we need milk, we need dairy farmers to produce milk, and we need healthy cows producing milk. But this industry is anything but simple. In northwest Pa. we have a number of dairy farmers who invest a lot of money into maintaining their ability to produce the milk we need for our breakfast cereal and cottage cheese for our salad or topping for our burgers. That doesn't even mention the most important of all.... ice cream. So today's feature picture is of some curious friends I made today at Rynd Home Farm as I'm beginning to piece together a series on local dairy farmers. This weekend I'll have a short story that I hope to expand on in the near future. Dumping milk doesn't seem to be the answer these days, so what is?
