Milk from a Dairy - purchased @ dairy? MSP

WildSwede | Mar 20, 2008 08:02 AM

Hello. A couple of years ago we were visiting the midwest and after leaving the MSP airport and driving southward, we came upon a small sign that stated "Fresh Milk". After a quick u-turn, we proceeded to a small red building which we entered. There was no one around, but refrigerators with milk and various other dairy products. Everything was done on the honor system. We were intrigued and purchased a glass(!) bottle of non-fat (or maybe it was 1%) and filled out the form, paid the box, took some pics of the building and the chickens and off we went. I am not sure exactly where it is. Somewhere between MPLS/Rochester or Rochester/Harmony.
Now, I am seriously contemplating (about 95% sure) a relocation to the Minneapolis area. I wonder, are there any dairys such as the one I described above in the MPLS area? I do not care if it is on the honor system or not, but the milk was so phenomenally delicious (we could see the cows grazing in the field beyond the barn) and you could taste the grass in it. The best milk I have ever had! Also, if there are places that have butter, artisian cheeses, etc. extra points!
I would be happy to drive 1 hour in any direction. Thank you in advance for all your help!! Happy Spring!!
