BOSQUE FARMS – Mike De Smet admits he’s no traditional dairy farmer in an operation his grandfather started in 1949 in Valencia County.
He told U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich during a tour of his farm that his practices have at times even bewildered his father, Huck, whom he followed into the business as a third-generation farmer. And it’s a far different operation from the one his grandfather, Landon, started. He started by hand-milking cows, Mike De Smet said.
