It Still Shouldn’t Be This Hard.

One of the challenges of our privileged times of choice and plenty: We want what we already have and we want a label for it...it really shouldn't be this hard.

So this Milkmaid walks into a bar….

Spending the bulk of the week in Dallas, Texas with a whole passel of Dairy Farmers…EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of them an Agvocate, even if they don’t know it and thought this was a timely re-post. Who did you talk to today about the food you put on their table?
