48 Hours In Just 48 Seconds

Other than farming, I pretty much love talking about food. Well, and my small child!
One thing that is important when it comes to food is freshness. We have all been to the grocery store where certain produce seems picked over and all that is left is something that looks like it may have been sitting there longer than a few days. 
One thing that you might find interesting is that it takes 2 days for fresh milk to make it to your dinner table. This video from Midwest Dairy sums up 48 hours in 48 seconds. And gives you just a small glimpse of the hard work that dairy farmers put in every single day!

Milk Matters

I will be the first to admit that I am not a huge milk drinker. Not because I don't like it, but because I always choose something else. But, I am a huge supporter of all dairy products. And I want to make sure my daughter gets her milk. I know how important milk is for my growing girl, and if you don't have a lot of time on this Saturday here is a quick run down of what milk has to offer!
