The Rural Woman Podcast Ep. 15 – Dairy Month Part Two: Farming & Family with Allison Akins

Hey everyone!

Thank you so much for tuning in to this weeks episode of The Rural Woman Podcast. We’re continuing our special Dairy Month episodes with dairy farmer Allison Aikins from Lisbon, NY.

Allison Akins is a 7th generation dairy farmer working alongside her grandparents, parents, brother and sister-in-law. The Akins family is one of the 800 farm families that own Cabot Creamery Cooperative, having the milk from their farm made into “The World’s Best Cheddar”. After graduating from university and working at an agricultural finance company for a few years, Allison returned to the farm to continue their almost 200 year legacy.

She enjoys working alongside her family helping with the veterinary work and driving her trusty old dump truck for crop work. In addition to the farm, Allison enjoys gardening, cooking, hiking and photography.

As mentioned in this episode, there will be a WHOLE WEEKEND worth of Dairy Good podcast episodes heading your way! So make sure you’re subscribed to The Rural Woman Podcast wherever you listen so you don’t miss a minute of it!
