Dairy farmer Leann Krainick says one of her favorite fall beers has to be a pumpkin IPA or, for a real treat, a pumpkin stout beer with ice cream.
Leann gives her recommendation on good authority. After all, she considers her dairy farm to be an important part of the beer community in Washington State.
October might just be the coziest month of the year. It’s finally boot and scarf season, leaves are falling, crockpot recipes and Halloween costumes fill your Pinterest feed, and pumpkin has made its way into EVERYTHING. Yes, October is a very good month. Thank goodness October has five weekends because we have some serious fall business to attend to.
What better way to celebrate June Dairy Month, and the beginning of summer than with festivals celebrating locally grown produce, local agriculture, tasty food and local entertainment. During June, cities across the state are host to festivals including parades, live music, car shows, cook-offs and so much more! These fun-for-all-ages events are a great way to meet your neighbors, get out and enjoy the sunshine, and create family memories.
The Washington State Dairy Ambassador program marked its 60th anniversary this year, now a part of our state’s rich dairy tradition since 1955. Over the course of the program’s history, more than 800 young women have participated -- learning valuable lessons in public speaking and community relations. The Dairy Ambassador serves as a public representative for Washington’s dairy industry and its farm-fresh, nutrient-rich products. It is her goal to share information with the people of Washington about dairy’s role in our state’s economy and its role in a healthy diet.
