(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!
