In “Sisters Sell Yogurt with Smiles,” dairy farmers Stephanie and Hayley Painter (aka Painterland Sisters) share with viewers how – as barefoot little girls – they saw their family farm as a magical place that connected nature with nourishment. Always intending to return to the rolling hills of their family farm, the sisters are using their enterprising spirit and smiles to make a popular dairy product. Their organic Icelandic-style Skyr yogurt brand launched in March and is made with the premium milk produced at Painterland Farms in Westfield, Pennsylvania.
“We told our dad when we turned 18 that we were going to get away for about 10 years because we need to talk to somebody other than our cows and our cousins,” Stephanie Painter says. “But we promised our dad and our grandpa that we were going to come back and bring a new twist to the farm to make it sustainable for generations to come.”
