From the kitchen table to the boardroom table, the USDA brings people together across the nation for: healthier food, natural resources and people; a stronger agricultural industry; and economic growth, jobs and innovation. Each Friday, meet those farmers, producers and landowners through our #Fridaysonthefarm stories. Visit local farms, ranches, forests and resource areas where USDA customers and partners do right and feed everyone.
After working on other dairies, Jared Weeks decided he want to start his own. This Friday, travel to Ringoes, New Jersey to see how Jared and his wife Treacy are producing local milk and ice cream as well as visit their newest business venture – a new farm stand with local sourced food.
