Working on a farm whose soil has been underneath his fingernails since he was twelve, six generation dairy farmer Scott Childs knows the meaning of work. Between he, 21, and his uncle Bobby Pringel the two milk 145 cows each day, twice a day, trading shifts weekly between the 4:30 am morning milking and that in the afternoon.
The family, whom all live on the Bellevale Farm in Glen Arm, are working towards a one year certification that would make them Baltimore County's first organic dairy farm.
