How to Celebrate Dairy Month
Stop By For A Scoop
On hot June days, ice cream is our most popular dairy treat. We introduce new flavors every week, and they are definitely worth a try on a hot summer day!
Cut Up Some Cheese
Our fresh, made-in-house cheese is a great treat to add to a summer charcuterie board or to eat on its own. We offer several flavors, and they’re all delicious.
Sip On Local Milk
We offer chocolate and 2% milk. Chocolate is our top-selling milk, and for good reason. Everyone knows milk contains calcium, but did you know it also gives us protein, vitamin D and potassium? Stop in and try some with a sandwich before the end of Dairy Month!
