What a thrill it was to go back to this dairy farm in the Italian alps! I first visited Attilio, Gabriella, and the 30 cows and 60 goats, in 2012. When I came back four years later I discovered they'd named a cow after me. Dairy cows live about four years at factory farms, and fourteen years at Arpisson, which is a paradise for animals.
