This was the milking parlor last week when we had our final milking. Those steps by Daniel’s feet are where he and his siblings used to take naps while Ken or Judy were milking the cows. To a dairy farmer, this space is more than just a barn – a lot of life happened here.
While we’re excited for a new parlor for milking the cows, we’re most excited about a milk house/processing room.
This is where butter, yogurt, cheese, and all your other favorite dairy products are made. When Grandpa Allen built this space, he had no idea the volume and variety of products that would be produced within this small room. Kefir pops and butter buttons may not have been on his radar, but they’ve certainly been a hit with you! (We love them too!) We’re looking forward to the ease and functionality these updated facilities will provide so we can better meet demand and provide you with the JakoPure dairy products your family loves.
We’ll be sure to keep you posted this winter as demolition ends and new construction begins.
Greek Yogurt available frozen
Just like the milk, I will have a few containers of the plain greek and vanilla greek yogurt thawing in the store cooler.
We want your leaves!
Soil health is a big priority for Jako Farm. We would love to turn your leaves into soil to nourish our land. We have a large compost pile 1/2 mile west of the farm store. We would LOVE you to bring us trash bags full of leaves to add to the compost pile. Please let me know if you have any questions about where to drop this off. We’ll also gladly take food scraps to add to the compost pile.
P.S. We have eggs!
Eggs are back in stock just in time for the holiday baking season! Soy-free eggs will be available late December.
For all of us at Jako Farm
