The farm:

The Brinker family – Jason, Jodi and daughter Kassidy – purchased the former Camp dairy farm in 2012 with the intent of going into dairy farming. The farm had not had dairy cows on it since 1978, when the Camp family got out of farming. However, the Camps had maintained the barn, which dates to the early part of the 20th century.
