A modern-day family farming moo-sical!
Dairy Heirs is like a good Wisconsin dairy breakfast: home grown, hearty, plenty sweet, with a side of tongue in cheek.
Elsie Frederiks is a passionate farmer, continuing in her family’s long tradition. But when her father passes away unexpectedly, estranged older brother Gabe returns to Wisconsin from Los Angeles, with his own ideas about what to do with the family business. As the siblings wrestle with the fate of the farm, so do their partners, neighbors, two quirky farmhands, and one extraordinary cow. Dairy Heirs untangles the question of what family tradition means to people with different dreams, and where — and with whom — one finds “home sweet home.”
