Last week, I took Will and Harper to a local creamery. Our neighbors have a dairy farm and we have watched them milk the cows. However, we wanted to check out a fairly new creamery in our area where the whole process of milk production is done on the farm! How cool is that?!
As soon as we walked into the creamery, which has a little storefront, the girl working asked us what milk we would like to sample. Chocolate milk, of course! She went over to the fridge and pulled out an unopened half gallon of whole chocolate milk for us to sample. It was delicious! Later when I looked in the refrigerator area, there were several containers of milk that are used for samples on a daily basis.
After looking around the store, we decided to head out to pet the calves. The girl showed us where the calves were and we wandered out to the barn to see them. It was so fun! We could just freely walk around the farm!
Petting the calves.
It was a gorgeous day with the prettiest blue skies!

Visiting the “teenagers,” which is what the girl called the bigger cows.
After visiting the cows and walking around the creamery, we headed back in the store and the kids colored and played with the toys. We bought a half gallon of the chocolate milk, which was soon gone! It was a fun trip! You can even go when they are milking the cows later in the day to watch…maybe we will do that next time:)
