This American Dairy Farmer | Yvette Longenecker

Every gallon has a story. Join us each week as we profile one of your local dairy farmers and get a behind-the-scenes look at a day in their life. We discuss how the farmers got their start in dairy farming, learn more about their heritage, and how the milk, cheese, and yogurt you enjoy every day is good for you and good for the planet.

This week we head to Williamsburg, PA to hear from Yvette Longenecker. Yvette shares with us what it was like growing up in small-town, Pennsylvania with two brothers on the farm, and why she decided to stay at the farm while raising her four girls.

We also hear from her uncle, Gordon on how they use cover crops on their land to prevent soil erosion, improve soil quality and protect the Chesapeake Bay.
