2013 Bootstrap Blogger Hub

NYFC is working with five inspiring dairy farmers from around the country to share their stories as they cut their teeth managing or working on dairy operations.

Bootstrap 2013 collageSome are newly transitioned from apprenticeships and excited to be building their own operations and others grew up living and breathing the family farm and are following the family legacy.  Special thanks to Stonyfield Farm, Profits for the Planet, the non-profit wing of Stonyfield Farm, for supporting this year’s Bootstrap Blog.

Read more about the 2013 Bootstrap writers below, or browse through all their posts here.   Don’t forget to check back in, as all five will be posting regularly throughout the season.
