Fresh from the Farm

Tracing the roots of our food

(page 1 of 3)

“This is Biggie. She was nominated all-American,” says Eric Butterworth, pointing out a very large cow at the Willonna Holstein Farm in Buhl. Butterworth is manager of the Cloverleaf Dairy, and he proudly knows the names of all the cows.

“This one with a little white on her face is Dinah. She’s my favorite cow. She’s one of the prettiest cows.

“She knows she’s pretty.”

Every cow at the Willonna Holstein Farm has a name and is individually cared for. A happy, healthy cow is the first goal of longtime farmer Bill Stolzfus and his wife Donna, who own both farm and dairy. The cows are a part of the family.

You may have seen their Cloverleaf Milk in local supermarkets in old-fashioned glass bottles with grass green caps, reminders of the days when milk was delivered daily to our doorsteps. To the Stolzfuses, it’s more than a nostalgic memory. When a cow is milked on a Friday, the milk is delivered to Wood River Valley stores on Monday.

The Washington State Potato Commission and the Washington Asparagus Commission recently held a fundraiser for U.S. Senator Patty Murray in Richland, Washington on November 12, 2009.

The purpose of the fundraiser was to thank and reward Senator Patty Murray for the millions of dollars in potato and asparagus research appropriations and earmarks that the Senator has secured for the Washington State potato and asparagus industries over the past several years.

During the November 12th fundraiser, representatives from Washington State Potato Commission and Washington Asparagus Commission indicated that they would continue to raise money for and support Senator Patty Murray if she continues to bring home the earmarks for them.

The fundraiser was attended by 25 representatives of the Washington potato and asparagus industries.
