milk (Ronnybrook Farm) on film

The Big Table, the first episode of a documentary on food production,  features the Ronnybrook Farm dairy operation in Ancramdale.  It debuted at the wrap-up of the NYC Food Film Festival last weekend.   It quietly focused on the life of a farm family producing milk.  You’ll laugh, you’ll cry.

I couldn’t swing the film fest, but I will continue to add their milk (from re-usable glass bottles) to my coffee and eat their delicious ice cream when I am too lazy to make my own…

A very enlightening article on milk came out recently in Mother Earth News online, “The Astonishing Story of Real Milk”.  I strongly recommend it should you have any questions about the dairy industry or the milk you drink.

Then think of the Ronnybrook family and their cows.
