June Dairy Month Spotlight
It's June Dairy Month and a lot of farmers are going out into the community to spread the word about the goodness of dairy. We want to hear about how you're encouraging people to 'Get More With Milk.'
Dairy farmers Maxie and Theresa Aker coordinated a Dairy Month celebration at the Wytheville Farmers Market on June 17. SUDIA staffer Jill Henderson helped out with promotional and educational materials. Homestead Creamery provided delicious ice cream and Duchess Dairy provided milk for the event. The local Farm Bureau Women's Committee even held live butter-making demonstrations for people in attendance.
