SharkFarmer Podcast: Amanda Freund Cowpots

Amanda Freund talks about her life changing experience traveling abroad for two years in the Peace Corps and how traveling off the farm opened her eyes to the simplicity of life in other cultures and the terrible hardships and challenges they face.

She shares about her Connecticut Dairy Farm and how they made the decision years ago to diversify within agriculture,  so their farm could stay viable during low milk prices, help stay compliant to possible regulations, and support many family members returning to work on the farm.

Their farm bakery, catering service, greenhouse, Cow Pots business, and dairy have this beautiful symbiotic relationship benefiting one another. Their Cow Pots business even captured the attention of the famous Mike Rowe, with “Dirty Jobs” filming an episode on their farm.

Her pride in Cabot Coop led to “friendly” smack talk as they “dished” member owned dairy cooperatives, ensuing a “battle Royale” between Cabot, Prairie Farms, and Tillamook.
