Get to know Jackie Cleary Dietrich of Auburn Meadow Farm. 

What are you going to speak about at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR? 

A Farming Year: Journaling the birth of a small family cattle farm. Stories, snapshots, food, joys, frustrations and why small farms are worth fighting for.

My aim was to know cows as they are without Disney-izing them. How do they react to their environment, how much do they feel, is it possible to have sustainable meat and dairy and allow the cows to have a quality life?

At Auburn Meadow Farm, we go about things a bit backwards - we make our farming decisions based on what we want to eat. Our whole livestock journey began with dog food and butter if you can believe it. Somehow from there, we ended up with 62 acres and a herd of bossy cows... Here we share what some of what we've learned along the way.

What are you most looking forward to sharing with FAIR attendees?
