This is the true story of how you get your milk. And because this is the story of a family dairy farm in Vermont it is also the true story of how you get delicious, Grade A maple syrup. Author Alan Pistorius embedded with the Treadway family for a year, recording four seasons of milking, fixing, plowing and syrup making. Pistorius' careful observations make for a powerful meditation on farming, business and family.
