I turned 33 last Friday (Earth Day) and it was the perfect day. Why? Because we turned on all our equipment in the dairy for the first time, AND…IT ALL WORKED!

Just worked. A huge, huge, huge thank you .

Compounded on that is the knowledge that in less than 2 months our lives will be forever changed, not just because we’re welcoming our son, but because we’re also hoping to license and launch the dairy in .
