No Substitute for Real Dairy: Dairy Farmer Opinion

By |July 13th, 2017

Ar-Joy Farms, Cochranville, PA
The following guest editorial written by Pennsylvania dairy farmer, Marilyn Hershey was originally published at PennLive on July 7th, 2017.  Click here for the full article!

Nut, plant-based drinks aren’t a substitute for real dairy: Opinion
I’ve learned first-hand that having a prominent name can lead people to make certain assumptions about you.

When I married into the Hershey family in 1984, some of my friends assumed I had struck the chocolate jackpot.

I had to explain that while Hershey is certainly a renowned and respected name in Pennsylvania, there are many Hersheys who have no ties to the descendants of Milton […]

Planning for Ironman Success

By |May 3rd, 2017

Growing up, my incentive to cook tasty recipes and crush some laundry was driven by getting home early from farm chores.

As a grown-up farmer, triathlete, and business owner, my incentive to plan meals, make lists and think ahead is driven by better recovery and satisfied bellies (let’s be honest – a fed hubby is a happy hubby 🙂 ).

Devoting a whole blog post on planning probably earns me “super boring adult” status, but it’s a risk I’m willing to take. Here are 3 areas of planning that triathletes focus on (or should focus more on) for ironman success:

Ironman Nutrition: It’s All About The Food

By |March 16th, 2017

Greetings faithful readers!!!

February was amusing; I had the opportunity of training in 10° and 60° weather… sometimes in the same weekend! I’m a month into training and it happens to be “National Nutrition Month”, so I figured the most appropriate topic for this month would be fueling the body. After all, everyone needs to eat!

Picture overload disclaimer:  I may have been a bit picture-happy with this blog. It’s food… I promise you will thank me.

It’s one thing to coach someone on what to eat before, during, and after training. It takes a whole new set […]

Food Safety: 5 Ways Dairy is Kept Safe

By |February 21st, 2017

A lot of work goes into making safe, wholesome milk. Ever wonder, what happens on a dairy farm? And how does milk get from the farm to your table?

Providing high quality milk for our tables starts with dairy farmers’ taking good care of their cows. The animals are fed nutritious food, given 24-hour access to fresh water, and get milked 2-3 times a day. It’s a round the clock job!

On a farm tour of Richmond Dairy Farms, John Richmond hosted Buffalo Bills Aaron Williams (#23) and other players.

Sunday Fun-Day!

By |August 12th, 2014

Everyone loves family reunions, right? Well, I do. I have been blessed with a wonderful family (both my own and my in-laws, luckily enough) and there really isn’t drama or any bad kind of crazy when we get together. It’s generally a lot of food, laughter and memories made and remembered.

There have been multiple times that someone on the Bollinger side (Chris’ mom’s family) mentions that they don’t often get together “just because” anymore. My understanding is that Chris’ grandmother had always been to one to organize such events and since her passing no one else has taken on […]
