Video: Visiting Radiance Dairy Farm in Iowa

Last year, the Perennial Plate video series shared 52 episodes about sustainable and adventurous food in Minnesota. For the final episode this past season, we announced our plans to take this web series on the road. Traveling with my camera woman (and girlfriend) Mirra Fine for the next six months, we'll be meeting farmers, fisherman, hunters and foragers, telling their stories, creating recipes with their ingredients, and showing our own road trip adventures.

This first new episode follows our departure from Minneapolis to the unique Radiance Dairy in Fairfield, Iowa, where Francis Thicke lets his dairy cows live out their lives after milking.
