On this week’s episode of The Rural Woman Podcast, you’ll meet Naomi De Ruiter who is a first-generation dairy farmer and the Modern Milkmaid at Birdsong Farm, where she raises registered Jersey cows and teaches cheese making classes. Naomi was 14 when she got her first cow, a Jersey-cross she named Blossom, and she fell head-over-hooves in love with her. Naomi's experience in the dairy industry has included managing a small dairy farm, working in cheese plants alongside an award-winning cheese maker, and being a licensed milk hauler.
