Pete Hardin started The Milkweed in June 1979. Over the following three+ decades, the paper has become the standard for dairy reporting in the United States. Hardin brings 30+ years of experience and contacts in the U.S. dairy industry to the pages of The Milkweed.
Pete lives with his wife and two children on a small farm near Brooklyn, Wisconsin (about 15 miles south of Madison). He holds a Master’s Degree in Agricultural Journalism from UW-Madison, atop a B.A. in English from Earlham College (Richmond, Indiana).
Pete hails from Sussex, New Jersey – once a bustling dairy community. His extensive contacts and travels around the nation make Hardin one of the most knowledgeable reporters covering the dairy industry.
“Nobody knows everything in the dairy industry, but my network of friends and sources keeps me pretty well posted,” Hardin believes.
