Mark Murray of Murcrest Farms in Copenhagen, N.Y., talks about his role as a dairy farmer dad to two young daughters in new video centered around Father’s Day grilling with dairy, helping to connect consumer families and farmer families.
Murray also reminds viewers to donate at checkout at participating grocery stores during National Dairy Month to support Fill a Glass with Hope® and the Great American Milk Drive™, the retail campaigns that help local foodbanks get milk to families in need.
“Becoming a dad definitely changed my role as a dairy farmer,” said Murray. “When I was younger, I worked six and a half or seven days a week. Once the girls came, family time was that much more important.
“I’m a father and I’m a farmer and at the end of the day, this is what it’s really all about – to get to sit down and have a meal with my family.”
