Sue is a first generation dairy farmer milking 80 cows with her family at Birchrun Hills Farm. Sue makes raw milk cheeses from her dairy herd and direct markets the cheese through farmers’ markets, restaurants and specialty cheese shops. Sue is committed to working with farmers to promote educational opportunities in sustainability, marketing and adding value to their agricultural products.
Active in many organizations, Sue is a 4-H leader and is a member of the Pennsylvania Farmstead and Artisan Cheese Alliance, American Cheese Society, Pennsylvania Holstein Association, Chester County Holstein Association and PAWomen in Agriculture Network. Like many farmers across Pennsylvania over the past ten years, Sue’s family farm has found it difficult to earn a fair living in the dairy industry. Through her involvement with PASA, her farm has been able to thrive.
Sue joined the PASA board in 2008.
