What's in Episode #2?
In this episode of Know Your Food with Wardee, I visit with Joseph Bray from Wholesome Family Farm. Joe, with his wife and almost eight children, runs a raw dairy herdshare farm in Cottage Grove, Oregon*. He shares how he got into dairy farming, the benefits and risks with raising raw dairy, how he runs the twice daily milking of nine Jersey cows, and how he keeps the milk clean and fresh.
In this podcast, I mentioned an article on raw milk that features Joe's farm and family — here's a link to that article. The article — The Raw Truth About Raw Milk — is good and balanced and well worth reading!
*Update: since recording this podcast, Joe shared some very good news. He found a larger property and is moving his herdshare off the 6-acre farm (plus additional leased land) in Cottage Grove to a 67-acre farm in Creswell, Oregon. 🙂 We're really happy for him, his family, and their cows!
What's Coming Up…
Today's podcast is actually Part 1 of 2; Joe and I talked so long and about such good stuff that I had to break it up into two parts!
So, do join us next week for Part 2 — we continue the conversation, discussing raw dairy farming in Oregon, natural handling of mastitis, and resources for those interested in finding or raising raw dairy. You don't want to miss it!
It's Your Turn
Got any questions for Joe about herd shares, raw milk, or anything else? Please ask away!
