The cover photo featuring Kansas Farmers Union board member David Heiens was taken by Tom Parker at the Iwig Family Dairy in Tecumseh, during the Kansas Beginning Farmer Bus Tour. The dairy had been in business since 1910, but in 2004 owners Tim and Laurel Iwig took the farm to the next level by adding a dairy bottling and retail service that supplied fresh milk to local grocery stores. Recently the Iwigs shifted their marketing strategy by increasing direct sales of its products to consumers at three retail locations.
