Abbe Turner is by nature an optimist. She was optimistic when she and her husband bought and moved to a Portage County farm in 2002, despite neither of them having a farm background. She was optimistic when she started producing cheese from the milk of her dairy goats at her startup business, Lucky Penny Creamery in Kent. And she was optimistic that an Ohio sheep dairy industry would develop through an initiative she helped create, so she could begin processing sheep cheeses, as well. Abbe’s optimism continues to yield a bountiful harvest.
