Episode 8: Small-Scale Dairy at Sugar House Creamery

One of our most cherished experiences from our Farmingmoon was our visit to Sugar House Creamery in Upper Jay, New York and meeting owners Margot and Alex, as well as their daughter Harriet, cheesemaker Casey, farm hand Kelsie and herd of Brown Swiss cows. We followed the team around during their afternoon chores of getting the herd in from pasture, milking and then sending them back out for more. The business, community and lifestyle that Margot and Alex have built over the past six years was really inspiring for us to see and experience as aspiring dairy farmers.
