Take a look inside three Iowa dairy farms whose focus is on grazing and the soil. Beyond their land stewardship practices, these farmers are all doing something unconventional to add value to their farms and products.
Francis Thicke of Radiance Dairy near Fairfield, Iowa, sells milk, cream and value-added products like yogurt and cheese to local grocery stores and restaurants.
Kevin and Ranae Dietzel of Lost Lake Farm near Jewell, Iowa, add value to their milk through artisan cheesemaking.
And Erin and Torray Wilson produce milk at Seven W Farm for Wisconsin-based Organic Valley near Paullina, Iowa.
