Women Impacting the Land 2016 - Amy Petersen

Amy Petersen is the fourth woman of her family to operate the Majestic-Manor Dairy farm, which has passed from mother to daughter over four generations. Petersen and her husband, David, manage the dairy as a closed-loop system where the cows feed the soil, the soil feeds the crops and crops feed the cows. Their innovation has earned them awards and public recognition, including being featured in a 2015 PBS documentary, “This American Land.”
