I love to travel and cannot resist my wanderlust. It’s inherited from my favorite travel companion, my mother. She and I are looking at our next trip. We’re deciding between her choices of an excursion to Hawaii or Alaska. As the matriarch, she gets first dibs.
As I was looking over the latest brochures with my Saturday latte (whole milk, of course), I got to thinking… I have experienced some unique breakfast dairy pairings across the world.
Here’s my unofficial list of my favorite use of dairy in breakfast around the world.

One of the most frequent questions we hear about lactose intolerance is, can I still drink dairy?
Yes! There are ways for people with lactose intolerance to enjoy their favorite dairy foods, while benefiting from the wholesome nutrients found in milk, cheese, and yogurt.
Here are some of the most commonly asked questions – and answers – we received during Lactose Intolerance Month in February.
What is lactose intolerance?
The inability to fully digest a naturally occurring sugar (lactose) found in milk and other dairy products. With this condition, the body does not make enough of an enzyme (lactase) needed to break down […]
When thinking of iconic movie beverages, something ‘shaken, not stirred’ is probably top of mind…maybe even a soda or some sort of “juice cleanse.” But, there’s one classic movie beverage that is full of nutritious goodness…milk!
Milk has been in the hands of movie stars for years – from commercials, to TV shows, to the BIG SCREEN!
With the 89th Academy Awards quickly approaching, we thought it would be cool to highlight milk as a supporting actor and share our favorite milk movie moments!

A lot of work goes into making safe, wholesome milk. Ever wonder, what happens on a dairy farm? And how does milk get from the farm to your table?
Providing high quality milk for our tables starts with dairy farmers’ taking good care of their cows. The animals are fed nutritious food, given 24-hour access to fresh water, and get milked 2-3 times a day. It’s a round the clock job!
On a farm tour of Richmond Dairy Farms, John Richmond hosted Buffalo Bills Aaron Williams (#23) and other players.

As we usher in a new year, a few dairy food trends are on our radar. It’s once again cool to have fresh, home-cooked meals made with locally-sourced food. Where food comes from, how it’s made, and food waste prevention are all the rage this year, boiling down to 2017 being a pivotal year for sustainable eats. Here are a few of the top trends to keep an eye open for this year:
1 – Making calories count
With growing evidence that fats are an essential part of a balanced diet, our love affair with “low fat” anything appears to be […]
From Selfies to Shakes – The PA Farm Show
The 2017 Pennsylvania Farm Show was full of farming, fun, and, of course, food. The surprising star of the #PAFS17? The hashtags!
Social media channels were booming as people typed, clicked, and shared their way through the farm show experience. Luckily for them, they were equipped with hashtags to serve as the whipped cream on top of a perfect post. Here is a rundown of our favorites:
