Got milk?

This building has lots of milk, and dairy products. The cow over the entrance has been there for many years. This use to be Steffen's Ice and Ice Cream Co., and is now Hiland Dairy Foods. Its not uncommon to see large dairy trucks pulling up to this building, bringing milk from local dairy farms processing, packaging (bottled), and distribution to grocery stores. They have a website, with some history, and recipes: hilanddairy Elarging the photo gives a better view of the cow, and the decor of the building.

One of my favorite buildings, because of the cow, of course!

How did Bossie climb up there?

I was reading in the New York Times recently that there are ten food adjustments one can make that will make a difference to health and one of those was to drink organic milk.

I suspect old Bossie once gave only organic milk.

Do you have milk in glass bottles? I remember when it was delivered to our door in glass bottles...it always tasted so good!!!

We used to have milk in glass bottles too. I loved it when I got the top from the milk, it was ususally lovely and creamy.

We also have a dairy with cows on the roof. I will try and take a picture soon.

That is a delightfully adorned building. Like a fine necklace... just a touch of ornamentation. I like it. Oh, and I WANT THE COW! Just for fun. :D
Thanks,
