Ever wonder about the process behind making the crème de la crème of all breakfast companions – milk? If so, a chance to learn the ins and outs of the milking process awaits at the 2004 L.A. County Fair. The Fair runs Sept. 10 to 26.
Housing a model dairy that pasteurizes its own milk makes the L.A. County Fair one of a kind. Fairguests will be educated on everything from how milk gets from the cow to the carton to how lattes are made at the Dairy Barn located in the FairView Farms neighborhood. The Southern California Dairy Education and Training Center will host milking demonstrations throughout the Fair.
Just outside the Milking Parlor is a favorite haunt, Moo Market, where Fairguests can buy ice-cold white and chocolate milk made by the Fair’s own cows. Learning “where lattes come from” is another educational experience at Moo Market.
Also displayed in the Dairy Barn will be the winning items of the various dairy products and producers competitions. Commercial products like milk, cream, yogurt, butter, cheeses and frozen dairy desserts are judged each year to find the best of the best.
Another thing that makes the L.A. County Fair so special is the fact that it has its very own ice cream plant. Dr. Bob’s Ice Cream Manufacturing Plant specializes in handcrafted ice cream sold throughout southern and northern California. Learn how ice cream is made and even buy tasty treats there.
