(Part 2 of 2) In this episode of Know Your Food with Wardee, I continue visiting 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*.
We talk about raw dairy farming in Oregon, natural handling of mastitis, and resources for those interested in finding or raising raw dairy. See part 1 here.
*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…
The raw dairy series continues, and next week I'll be talking with Nance Sparks from HomesteaderSupply.com — she moved her homestead from Arizona to Wisconsin so I want to get all the scoop on that!
