Proud of East Texas: Waldo Way

MINEOLA, TX (KLTV) - Just a short drive down County Road 2482 in Mineola will take you to the beautiful Waldo Way Dairy Farm. Again and again, Ris Waldo is asked the question, "How did you move from being a professor to milking cows?"

The answer Ris gives is that all her life experiences have led to this point, but the deaths of her grandmother and granddaughter were catalysts for the dramatic changes in her life.

Ris established the only raw milk dairy in Texas, licensed to sell raw Guernsey milk. Opening in 2013, Waldo Way was an immediate success, selling out of milk the first day. The farm store also sells natural food products such as bread, meats, jam etc, from other farmers.

Ris Waldo says she misses teaching nursing at The University of Texas at Tyler, but loves to teach others about natural food products.
