About a month ago I got an email from a listserv on campus asking for someone to help a small diversified farm out with their upcoming kickstarter campaign to start a microdairy. Because I get so many random emails about things on campus, I almost overlooked it. But of course, knowing me, the dairy aspect caught my eye immediately and I emailed the owners of the farm.
30 minutes later I got a phone call, and that's how I met Courtland and Jenny Rocco of BlueLoon Farm. Since then I have become very invested in their project and the overall mission that these two share. They are two of the coolest, nicest people I have ever met and I feel extremely privileged to have gotten to know them so well. Their plan is to start an organic micro creamery after the acquisition of 5-8 cows from a dairy that Courtland has worked at for the past two years.
But you can read all about it on their kickstarter, which is up and running now. My part in all of this is the creation of their kickstarter video. I'm pretty happy with the result. My good friend and radio cohost Brendan allowed me to use his song "Falconer" for the video and it fits just perfectly. I'm very lucky to be in the company of such talented people.
The passion that these two have for what they are doing is extremely inspiring. I really hope people will take the time to learn about their project and spread the word. Because seriously, how cute are these cows?
