This small family owed farm and creamery is a must stop if you are in the area. Outside you'll find the "silo" where you can order shakes and ice cream by the scoop. But also be sure to visit the store inside for some take home goodies.
You'll always find milk, often milked from the cow and bottled the same day. They do not have all types of milk all of the time as this is a fresh made operation. If they make a batch and run out, they're out til they make more. But you'll usually find at the minimum whole milk, low fat and chocolate milk. Buttermilk shows up from time to time as does cream, and expect eggnog during the holidays.
In addition to milk you'll find ice cream of various flavors, again whatever they've made recently. And it is not uncommon to find butter and cheese. In addition to stuff made by the family, they also feature other local items from other farms on occasion such as sausage, ground beef and even vegetables when in season.
I have to say this is the best milk and ice cream I've ever had. I'm not a huge "organic" shopper, but wow you can really taste the freshness in this. No hormones or antibiotics and the milk is non-homogenized. You can REALLY taste the difference.
You'll find the creamery in a big red barn with a ginormous cow out front on Cleveland Hwy in the foot hills of the North Georgia Mountains about 60-70 miles north of Atlanta. Well worth a stop if you find yourself touring local attractions such as Lake Lanier, Babyland General or Helen, GA. Try the ice cream in the silo and I guarantee you'll go inside and buy more to take home.
