Concerned Citizens Buy Cows to Save Organic Dairy Farm

Inspiring news story of an American town's efforts to save and re-establish an organic dairy farm. Friends of Town Farm Dairy in Simsbury, Connecticut, raised funds to purchase seven organic Jersey cows to ensure enough production for town-owned Town Farm Dairy to survive and serve the poor, a condition of the deed from the owner who willed the farm to the town in the late 19th century. Small dairy farms across America are vanishing as land prices escalate and the return on dairy farming goes down. Town Farm Dairy is bucking that trend. The news story has pretty pictures of this New England organic farm and, of course, sweet, brown-eyed cows doing what cows love to do...eat hay...lots of hay.
