Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg visited a family farm in Blanchardville this weekend as part of his plan to visit all 50 states.

In a post on Facebook, Zuckerberg said be spent Sunday afternoon with the Gant family, which has a five-generation farm that raises dairy and beef cattle.

“The family is incredibly disciplined. Everyone works daylight to dark, seven days a week,” Zuckerberg wrote.

“When we were driving around his property, Jed told me he’d rather feed the cattle than feed himself if it came down to that.”

“The Gant family is incredibly proud of the work they do,” he said.

Zuckerberg said that during his visit he fed a calf for the first time and drank unpasteurized milk straight from a cow. He also drove a 70-year-old tractor.

He said he’s taking some cheese home with him.

Zuckerberg was also in Madison this weekend.
