In 2013, five young women chronicled their experiences of starting dairy farms on the National Young Farmers Coalition Bootstrap Blog. In the long-awaited final installment of the series, three of the women take us to their farms in short films. Watch now and see how these women overcome icy temps, broken tractors, early mornings and a tough farm sector. Films are produced by Farm Run Media and sponsored by Stonyfield.
See Sarah Chase of Chaseholm Farm transition her family’s dairy to a grass-fed herd.
