Welcome to our blog series, Dairying: Through a Woman’s Eyes. This series will highlight women who are actively owning and operating dairy farms around our great state of Washington.
Take a moment to think where your food comes from – the very root of where it began!
In a generation focused on the fast-paced hustle and bustle that our culture seems to thrive on, many of us forget where the food on the very plate in front of us comes from.
In honor of National Agriculture Day I would like to take a moment to thank something we all get the privilege to be a part of – farming.
You might be thinking, “Well, I live in an apartment building in the middle of a city… I’m not a part of agriculture!”
Ahh Valentine’s Day… a day full of love, flowers, chocolate, wine and cheese!
Wait, what? Cheese? I asked this question myself. But cheese pretty much rounds out the perfect Valentine’s Day. Pair some exceptional wine with delicious cheese and you have basically created the best day for yourself, your friends - or for your significant other.
Now remember, there are a million ways to pair wine and cheese, these are just some friendly suggestions to get you started!

Welcome to our new blog series, Dairying: Through a Woman’s Eyes. This series will highlight women who are actively owning and operating dairy farms around our great state of Washington. These women play pivitol roles in day to day farming operations; shattering the old stigma of dairy farming.
When I think back to my first memories, one thing comes to mind – cows. While most young girls were playing with dolls or pretending to be a princess, I spent hours pretending to be a dairy farmer with my little sister. At age 3, I began a quest to master the art of drawing… cows of course, and continually filled my parents’ days with nonstop conversation about everything cow!
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.
