Social Media Interview Published in Progressive Dairyman!

If someone would have told me two and a half years ago when I started the Alpine Hills Dairy Farm Facebook page that it would one day have been mentioned on the radio, the DFA Leader Magazine, and now the Progressive Dairyman magazine I would have laughed my head off! Really??? When I got the idea to start the page, I knew very, very little about dairy farming. My husband and I had been married just a few months (we were not working at the farm at the time) and with all our visits to the farm I thought it would be a fun place to share pictures and updates. I felt that it would really be something that people who didn’t live on farms would enjoy reading and learning about. That seems like it has turned out to be true!

As time has gone on, and we starting working at the farm full-time (celebrated our 2nd anniversary working here last week!) I have been able to learn more first hand about dairy farm life and have been here to take more pictures to share. I have absolutely LOVED having the opportunity to manage the Facebook page! Thank you to all our loyal fans who continue to give me such great feedback and encouragement. 🙂

Below is the link to the article recently published online and in print in the Progressive Dairyman magazine. Special thanks to Emily Caldwell for taking all my jumbled thoughts (I get super excited talking about social media! Ha!) and putting them into one cohesive article. She did such a fabulous job and it was a great opportunity to get to meet her! Click the picture below for the link to the entire article or click here.

A New Look

Our website had some updating done to it yesterday…..by me. 🙂 I was able to add some of the fabulous photos of our farm which were taken by SC Motion and Stills, LLC as part of our DFA Member of Distinction award. They definitely add some pizzaz to our site!

I also have added a Media page to the site with links to various videos and articles that Alpine Hills Dairy Farm was mentioned in. Feel free to check out our new look!

DFA Newsletter Article & Other Media Updates

I apologize for my lack of posts lately, my life has been SO crazy! More on that in days to come. 🙂

A couple of weeks ago I made an announcement on our Facebook page that an article that Dairy Farmers of America had interviewed me for last summer was finally going to be published. I had several friends ask to see this article which was published in the March edition of the DFA Newsletter…….so here it is! Thanks for your interest in reading it – it means a lot!

Also, some more surprises are coming down the pike. Last week I was asked to help contribute to a Borden Cheese Friends of Elsie blog. What a fun experience! I expect that blog will be published sometime this month and I will be sure to share the link once it is available.

In addition, I believe our DFA Member of Distinction story will be coming out in a special edition of the DFA Leader magazine this month as well. Many exciting things going on here at our farm!

Thanks for reading,
