Brant and Kayla Stooksbury pose with Linda, one of eight cows with which the couple opened their new business with a couple of months ago. Whole milk and chocolate milk is being sold at several outlets in Jefferson, Grainger and Hamblen counties. – MARK BROWN | THE STANDARD BANNER

Brant Stooksbury did not go into accounting for the numbers. He got in it for the cows.

Having grown up on his family’s dairy, he knew by the time he was 19 that he wanted to be a dairy farmer, but he also knew that he did not ultimately want to milk 200 cows and sell the product off to another processer. While it might sound funny to some folks, he wanted to know his cows and he wanted to return the favor for what they provided for him.
