This episode isn’t just for farmers. It’s for anyone who depends on farmers to provide food for their families!
Welcome back to part 2 of our interview with Charlotte Smith of 3 Cow Marketing and Champoeg Creamery. In the first half of our interview, we discussed how farmers need to price their products to stay in business. In today’s conversation, we’ll find out the vital role raw milk plays in the health of Charlotte’s family, which type of cow’s milk is easiest to digest, how to ensure your access to real food and much more.
