Bobolink Dairy - Milford, NJ
We took a trip to Bobolink Dairy & Bakehouse back in December. It was cold, wet and lovely. Bobolink believes in letting their cows roam. In fact, their motto (and website) is "Cows Outside." They're 100% grass-fed and you can tell with the taste of their raw milk cheeses. They make wood-fired breads and even offer classes on bread making, which I hope to take one of these days.
They do tours almost daily and are open year round. Definitely wear your mud-worthy boots when you go - you go where the cows go. Cooper, their farm dog, also goes on the tour as your guide. When he's not roaming around with the cows, he's guarding the chickens.
If you can't get to Milford for a tour, be sure to check them out at the Farmer's Markets in Raritan NJ, Pleasantville, NY and Manhattan (Both Tucker Square & Union Square). For a full lineup, check out their site here.
