I’ve neer heard the term “microdairy” and I’m guessing maybe you haven’t either. Well on episode 160, we are going to learn how a dairy of just 10 cows is using the microdairy technique to supply customers with a great product with a process that just might change the industry. Jesse Vivian is from Lane’s End Creamery, and on today’s episode, Jesse and I will chat about why his family started a microdairy, what makes a dairy “micro”, financial advice from Dave Ramsey, and much more! Don’t forget to check out Lane’s End Creamery at the links below.
