Cotton Candy Milk…. Yumm!

Today was possibly my favorite day so far on this trip. I am saying possibly because the last couple days might top it. Our first stop today was to Shatto Milk Company. It was a very cute dairy. I thought it was small but after touring it, it was pretty big. They have almost 400 cows and milk all of them at least twice a day some of them three times a day. At the dairy they make there own milk (duh!), cheese and ice cream. Although, the milk they make is not just your usual milk you buy at a grocery store. They have flavors like rootbeer, chocolate-peanut butter, strawberry, banana, coffee, cookies n cream, and cotton candy. I know a lot of those sound gross but they were all delicious except the chocolate-peanut butter only because I do not like peanut butter. They are in the process of creating two more flavors. They did not tell us what those flavors were though but I know they’ll be delicious. They have a cute little store where you can purchase all kinds of their stuff. I just bought there chocolate milk and sweet tea because I love both of those. If I ever come back to Missouri I will definitely stop at this dairy again! Oh and this place is amazing!! On a busy day they will bottle a total of 14,000 bottles of milk. I forgot.. I also got to milk a cow for the first time ever! It was pretty awesome!

After we left Shatto Milk Company we went to Schweiver Orchards. This orchard is not like many I have been too. It is a U-pick Orchard which is a lot of fun! They have everything there from peaches to apples to berries to pumpkins and Christmas trees and a lot more. The owner of the Schweiver Orchards took us on a hay ride to show us around and he even let us have an apple. It was soo good. I love apples and it was delicious. I wish I would have picked my own apples to eat for the rest of this trip.


Well to put it all together I think I should just move to Missouri so I can have as much milk and apples as I want. haha Well I really enjoyed everything today from the learning/touring to the delicious food I got to have. Can’t wait for tomorrow!!
