Milky Way Farm
When I was in elementary school Milky Way Farm built a creamery on their small family-owned dairy farm. It was the first time I had seen cows and ice cream next to each other and been taught about how my food is made from source to final product. Each ice cream flavor carries the name of one of their cows to further the connection between the cow and the ice cream. Besides selling delicious ice cream Milky Way has become an educational farm for kids to see and learn about agriculture in a time when farms are quickly being developed into neighborhoods. It was the first farm I had visited that made me want to be a farmer and has held an important role in my own exploration of food systems.
