In 1993, Larry and Linda Faillace had a dream. They imported sheep from Europe to make cheese on their family farm in Warren, Vermont. By 1998, their dream was turning into a years-long struggle to keep their sheep alive. The USDA believed the sheep may have contracted Mad Cow Disease and put U.S. livestock at risk. Even though no sheep in the world have ever contracted Mad Cow Disease under natural circumstances, the USDA destroyed the Faillace family's dream in March 2001, when dozens of armed Federal agents seized their sheep and slaughtered them. This is a story of optimism, heartbreak, politics, community, and family.
