Local farm urges community to recognize importance of agriculture

Posted 11 March 2019 at 12:10 pm


Now in our third generation of farming in Gasport, our family is proud to be part of the population that feeds families in our community and beyond.

March 14 is National Ag Day, a time to recognize the important role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products. Our family farm is dedicated to producing wholesome, nutritious milk. To do so means taking excellent care of our cows–ensuring they have a healthy diet, plenty of fresh water and clean, comfortable living conditions–no small feat during this challenging winter!

There are no snow days or delays for farmers and harsh weather makes routine tasks harder–but farming isn’t just our job, it’s our passion and way of life.

You may have heard dairy farmers are facing tough times right now. Want to support us? Think of us when you go to the supermarket. Choose real dairy products—milk, cheese, yogurt or your family’s favorite dairy food. Warm up with hot chocolate made with real milk, creamy soups or grilled cheese.
