I had the chance to sit down and chat with Tara Vander Dussen, the @NewMexicoMilkMaid, and talk about ALL THE THINGS! I’m so thankful we were able to finish out recording before the power went out in New Mexico that day due to the big storm they had blowing through.
Tara is a 5th generation Dairy Farmer, Environmental Scientist, President of the United Dairy Women, Wife to Milkman Dan and Mama to two little Milkmaids. Seriously, I don’t even know where she squeezed in the time to talk to me.
If you follow along Tara on any of her social platforms, then you know she is a true Agvocate for the dairy industry. Dairy farmers have been taking a lot of heat from in the media lately and Tara walks us through and debunks some of the most common misconceptions in this episode. I think the underlying answer we came up with for all of these myths was to make sure as consumers we ask a Farmer, not Google.
Tara has recently launched the New Mexico Milkmaid apparel line over at her online store. She has hats, t-shirts, and more so make sure you go check those out. How cute are the Who Feeds the World? Farm Girls! shirts?
