A special loan has allowed a Fairfield County teen to immerse herself in farm life.
Shaggy Coos is a dairy farm in Easton where Margaret Brady, 16, grew up raising cows and turkeys.
Brady has been able to run a project on the farm thanks to a federal loan given to young people.
"That really gave me the opportunity to pay for everything myself," says Brady. "It was a complete business that I ran and I managed, I contacted all my customers, I went through the process of all the payments and then I repaid the loans."
On Wednesday, Rep. Jim Himes stopped by Shaggy Coos and tried his hand at modern milking.
Shaggy Coos is one of only two dairy farms in Fairfield County. It contains a store with fresh milk and meat.
