Billie Johnson - Windy Acres Dairy Farm

It's Always Been About the Journey

Billie Johnson is a dairy farmer on a journey. Raised on a cattle ranch near Monument Oregon, Johnson has always known that farming was in her blood. But her journey through farming has not been an easy one. And, as one of the leaders in the raw milk movement, she's had to fight for the right to supply healthy, organic products using the “herd share” business model -  legally allowing her members to obtain raw milk products right from the farm. Listen to this podcast and be inspired! Total running time - 8:37.
