Cabots Farmer Friday: Barstow’s Longview Farm

What is your favorite thing about being a dairy farm family?

I think the best part about being a dairy farm family is that we aren’t just a family we’re a team.  House after house in our small rural neighborhood is a Barstow home and you can always count on your cousins to be around to babysit, your uncle teaching you how to drive, your grandma to help you whip up some delicious cookies, and when the cows get out its all hands on deck.  It has really taken the whole village to raise us farm kids and we could not be more thankful for the valuable lessons we have learned about working with animals, working with the Earth, and working with each other.  The farm is our common bond that makes our family relationship just that much stronger.  Our community runs seven Barstow generations deep and that’s something you can’t find just anywhere.
