Dances, Dean's and memes: Jess Peters makes mark on social media

Young Farmer Podcast: For the Pennsylvania dairy farmer, social media is an outlet for herself and a tool to help the industry she loves.

By day, Jessica Peters helps run her family’s Spruce Row Farm in Meadville, Pa. By day and night, she’s very active on social media, making people laugh and cry, connecting with thousands of followers.

Living and working on a dairy farm can be lonely at times, so social media has become her tool to communicate and talk not only about her farm, but also her emotions and why she’s a dairy farmer.

The podcast is two parts, with the first part focusing on the recent Dean Foods bankruptcy letters and the second part focusing on her social media presence.
