Farm To Fork Wyoming - Herd Shares

Wyoming PBS Special "Farm To Fork Wyoming - Herd Shares"
Airs Sunday, September 22 at 9:30 PM

We catch up with herd share manager Frank Wallis, whose herd supplies milk to 90+ Wyoming families spread from Buffalo to Sheridan and Gillette. At the Wallis family's EZ Rocking Ranch beauty and nature's logic abound. We'll see how Frank keeps it all going, and learn something about the gratification of being an "Owner Certified" dairy. Interviews with Frank and his sister Sue Wallis, reveal how this very limited, but controversial relaxation of Wyoming's raw milk ban is affecting some local food and farm economies.

We'll also sit down with nutrition expert and educator Monica Corrado to gain insight into this most dynamic of foods - raw, whole milk - and learn why customers wish to consume this ancient food, un-pasteurized, against the warnings of the USDA. We finish the episode at Steve and DeeAnne Doyle's herd share farm in Riverton to make quick and simple queso fresco.
