Eat Dairy Foods
Drink an extra glass of milk, replace your usual snack with yogurt, make a refreshing sour cream or cream cheese dip, have an ice cream cone, give yourself a treat by using real butter, and add cheese to just about any dish to bring the taste up a notch!
Support Restaurants who Support Dairy Farmers
Our farm is a member of our local tourism council. They support local dairy farmers and cheese processors by decorating the Geauga Tourism office window in a dairy theme. For the third year, I decorated the window for June Dairy Month.
