Today we toured Country Girl Creamery in Lumberton, Mississippi. It is a working dairy farm with over 100 head of cattle, mostly Jersey cows. C fed the calves by bottle.
Then, we toured the area where cheese processing and pasteurization takes place.
They showed how cheese waxing is done and talked about the aging process.
Next, we saw the milking process.
Next, we took a tractor ride to the pasture to see the cows grazing.
We enjoyed lunch at the farm with farm-fresh grilled cheese, an apple and chocolate milk straight from the farm!
We bought lots of meat, milk & cheese, too!
