Our series on ‘the politics of farming’ continues with a look at the dairy industry in our region. There are dairy farmers throughout the area and they range from small, independent farms to co-ops serving large commercial producers. We’ll explore the day to day operations of a dairy farm, the policies that regulate the industry and the push by local farmers to more directly connect with residents who want their milk. Join us for a look at the politics of farming and the dairy industry.
