#AskAFarmer Friday: Logan Courtney

Looking forward, what do you hope to accomplish on the farm?
We currently milk around 65 to 70 registered Jerseys, and I hope in the following years to increase the herd size, as well as improve the quality of our cows through selective breeding. We are looking at adding on to our current facilities to make our happy cows even more happy with a new freestall barn. Finally, being able to open the farm to more opportunities for agritourism and ag-advocacy. The future of agriculture depends on the public's support and helping consumers to be well informed, as many already want to be in this day and age.

How do you feel about sharing from your farm on social media?
We are perhaps the luckiest generation to have the use of social media. The public can reach out to today’s farmers, ask questions when they see something on Facebook or YouTube and get an honest answer. I welcome consumers to follow our Facebook page to follow our progress on the farm. They can also follow my Instagram and Snapchat accounts, @logan.cfarms, for a daily dose of what goes on around a family farm!
