Virginia Dairy Princess Program

2020 Virginia Dairy Princess

Mindi Freed is seventeen years old and is the daughter of Steve and Anna Freed of Timberville, Virginia. She has worked on Ridgeview Dairy Farm in Quicksburg for three years. She has been involved in many clubs and organizations such as 4-H, FFA, Girl Scouts, and Art Guild.

She is currently working towards the Girl Scout Gold Award. This project involves educating middle school students about careers in the dairy and agricultural industries. She is heavily involved in 4-H and currently serves as a Virginia 4-H Cabinet Mentor and All-Star Liaison and a Shooting Sports Ambassador. She will attend Virginia Tech this fall and major in Dairy Science. After college, she would like to work with USDA to perform meat and poultry inspections and later advance to agricultural outreach through the Dairy Alliance. She is super excited to serve as the 2020 Virginia Dairy Princess and her goal this year is to find social justice for the dairy industry in Virginia.

The purpose of the Virginia Dairy Princess Program is to promote the consumption and sale of dairy products to the consumer and to create better relations between urban and rural people through one on one contact at the local level.

The Princess and her court, consisting of an Alternate, Duchesses and Dairy Maids, work throughout the year to accomplish the goals of the Virginia Dairy Princess Program. Activities range from school appearances to county fairs to industry sponsored dairy promotions.

The Virginia Dairy Princess Program is open to young ladies between the ages of nine and twenty one years old and she must have ties to the dairy industry through family or 4-H / FFA
