June is National Dairy Month
and my birthday!!
Who knew about all these national months and national days? I've been doing a little research. So, June is National Dairy Month. Here are a few fun filled facts:
- There are about 47,000 dairy farms in the United States
- 97% of the dairy farms are family owned
- The average herd size is around 187 head of cattle
- The dairy industry contributes about 900,000 jobs nationally
- Farms with more than 100 cows produce 86% of the milk
- There are 443 dairy farms in Maryland with about 49,000 cows
One of the farms you can visit is Broom's Bloom Dairy located at 1700 S. Fountain Green Rd in Bel Air, Maryland.
Their farm shop features their own old fashioned ice cream, home made lunches, their own home made artisan cheeses, pork sausage and locally grown lamb, beef, free range eggs, and locally grown vegetables in season. Their ice cream is amazing!!
Check out their website for hours and their menu.
