Dairy Farming: More than just milk
Blog: Farm, Life, Love by Joanna Samuelson Lidback
Some dairy farmers go above and beyond the rest of us. Yankee ingenuity was born on a farm, and it’s still alive and well today on a place located in the northwest corner of Connecticut, the Freund’s dairy farm and Cow Pots. A CowPot is a biodegradable nutrient-rich planter that is made from cow manure, after it has been run through a methane digester. Recently, the Freunds were awarded with a Sustainability Award from the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy to recognize their innovative efforts in this area.
Amanda Freund graciously took a few minutes out of her busy day to do a quick Q&A with me.
