Happenings like this just have a way of making me happy. It's not because the Baily's farm is the last working dairy farm in my township, or even because it's so close to where I live that when my windows are open I can hear their cows mooing. It's because the 136-year old dairy farm has been given new vitality by a very young (24 years old) descendant of the original owner, and the dairy now not only bottles its own milk, but also sells it at the farm and at one other nearby location. And this is just the beginning of a retail operation that will soon be expanding.
The milk from Baily's Dairy is from grass-fed cows and it's hormone-free. You can see those cows grazing as you drive past the farm on Lenape-Unionville Road in Pocopson Township. I am just delighted by this latest entry into Chester County's growing "Buy Fresh, Buy Local" movement, and I wanted to spread the happy news.
