June is Dairy Month
2019 marks the 82nd annual celebration of this nutritious and delicious category of products! Dairy products including milk, yogurt and CHEESE provide important nutritional benefits through high-quality protein, vitamins A and D and minerals such as calcium to keep your bones strong and healthy. Did you know that there are 8 grams of protein in just 1, 8oz cup of milk? Not to mention milk is the freshest product you can buy at grocery stores near you, from farm to store in just 48 hours! Milk is a local food that definitely fits the clean eating trend! What better way to end a work-out than with a big glass of my personal favorite, chocolate milk. Proven to be the best post-workout beverage for muscle recovery and energy replenishment. Come celebrate World Milk Day on June 1st with us at the Heritage Farm Museum from 11am-4pm, where you will meet a dairy cow, watch a milking demonstration, taste our delicious cheeses and much more! Busy that day? Stop by the Ag District Center during our new hours any day of the week, to pick up your favorite Locksley Cheeses and joining us in celebrating June is Dairy Month (even though we think every month should be dairy month) and remember, three servings of dairy a day!
