Aug 13, 2022

FROM HOST MICHAEL OLSON: "The environmental organizers say we must get rid of the cow to save the earth from climate change and global warming. That sounds like a very serious business, and saving the earth is a very noble thing to do, so I began looking into featuring their effort to get rid of the cow on the Food Chain Radio Show and Podcast. But then my attention was redirected to a California dairy farm by a listener to the show. She said, “Please feature Alexandre Family Farms. They produce regenerative dairy products. And I absolutely love their A2-A2 milk!” Maggie B’s enthusiasm was not to be denied, and now leads us to ask: Can the cow help save the earth?"

Aug 11, 2021

Aaron Zober is joined by fourth generation farmers Blake & Stephanie Alexandre to talk about all things dairy. Blake & Stephanie discuss the breakthrough in the dairy industry known as A2 milk, which many have found easier to digest. Like many real foods, this is going back to what food used to.
