Alexis is back! This week we're giving you the story behind something that's probably in your fridge right now: Prairie Farms products. Their milk, cream, yogurt, cheese, butter, or ice cream. Maybe you've never thought about it but it all comes from a cow just nearby.
Prairie Farms has been in business since the 1930s. They are a lot bigger now, made up of 700 family farms across the Midwest, and many of them are multi-generational, like Craig Meng who has 150 cows on his dairy farm in Freeburg, Illinois. He took a day away from the field to sit with us, along with Darin Copeland to give us some insight into the dairy business and how milk products hit the shelves within 48 hours.
Sip on their chocolate milk and enjoy!
