Story Summary

The Peterson Dairy in Trenton, Missouri has been in operation for over 50 years. Truly a family business, Brian Peterson, his wife Barb and their two sons, Opie and Alex work together in perfect synchronicity. They rotate crops and pastures to husband the land by replenishing nutrients and preventing erosion. Managing the land in this manner leads to healthier cows and a higher quality product. In the near future, this second generation farm will become a third generation farm when Opie and Alex take over the family business.
