But unlike the typical local busi- ness, the Pederson's most important asset is cows. The Pedersons are dairy farmers. The most important measure of success at the end of the day is knowing that their actions help create a more sustainable environment while providing people in the community with ,wholesome dairy foods. Bruce and Jane Pederson are second-generation dairy producers. In 1993, Bruce and Jane Pederson formed a partnership with Bruce's parents and formed Thistle Dew Dairy outside of Westbrook. Every day, twice a day, they milk 120 Holstein cows. They farm 250 acres of land, all of which goes to feed their animals. "We love what we do," said Bruce Pederson. "Dairy farmers across Minnesota differ in the number of cows they milk and some of the particular ways they farm, but we all share a passion for what we do. It is our respon- sibility to tal e care of the natural resources and ani- mals on our farm and we take that responsibility with a great deal of pride and commitment." The family lives and works on the farm and that is a strong incentive to pro- tecting the land, water and air. In addition, cow comfort and health is carefully moni- tored every single day. Bruce and Jane work with an expert dairy animal nutritionist to formulate the best diets for the cows and have a veterinarian come to the farm regularly to check on the animalis health. Advancements in technology, animal husbandry and milk quality methods are put to use. "What we do on our farm is the starting point for safe and nutritious dairy foods in the supermarket," says Jane Pederson. Because of this commitment at the dairy farm, people can count on wholesome dairy foods produced-while sus- taining the environment, Jane Pederson said.

The word "planning" becomes extremely impor- tant in tough economic times. Planning can help us save time, money and frus- tration. This is especially true as related to your food dollars. saver! Freeze portions in amounts that you will use for one meal. Use frozen meals within a reasonable amount of time for best qual- ity. 4. Planning ahead can include using your crock pot. Many tasty dishes can be prepared ahead of time and Here are ,five tips to :help ready for you to eat later in youlplan your food budget: the ~day ~ you: do a little 1. Figure out what your planning. This convenient • food budget is. How many cooking method is easy to do dollars do you have to spend on food each week? Once you know this amount, be deter- mined to NOT spend more than that amount. If you cannot feed yourself/family on this amount, find out what other outside resources. are available that can help you to stretch your food dol- lars. 2. Make a menu plan for the week. This is time well spent. It will save you time later. Check your refrigera- tor, freezer and cupboards for supplies you have on hand before going to the gro- cery store. Clip and save coupons for items you use. Then, make a grocery list of supplies you need. Once you are at the grocery store, stick to your list. Impulse buying is expensive! 3. Consider quantity cook- ing. Preparing food in large quantities and then freezing portions of that food for later use can be a great time and eases the frustration level of many a cook who is trying to feed a hungry fam- ily who has just walked through the front door. Be sure to follow the proper cooking methods when using your crock pot to ensure food safety. 5. Prepare healthy snack items when you do have the time so that you and your family can "grab and go" with those snacks when you do not have time. Prepare fresh fruit and vegetables in ready to go forms to make them readily available and easy to eat. Whole grain crackers, low-fat yogurt and other healthy items are good items to have handy. Taking snacks from home for" road trips will save you money in the long run and is a much healthier alternative than eating high-fat foods from drive-through windows and convenience stores. for grandkids to grandparents...
