Amanda’s Story in her own words:
What is your role in the dairy industry?
I spend a majority of my time working in our CowPots factory where we have actually turned our cows manure into a value added, biodegradable pot for gardeners to start seeds in. This business allows us to diversify our production and has opened us up to so many unique opportunities like being featured on the TV show, Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe. We’ve participated in greenhouse and farming trade shows all over the country, allowing us to promote a dairy farm business outside of the dairy industry.
