Did you know that June is National Dairy Month? By 1939, June was officially commemorated as National Dairy Month, but it didn’t start off that way. In 1937, the month originally started out as a way to distribute milk during warm summer months, which is why it was initially known as National Milk Month. By 1939, it became Dairy Month.
To celebrate the month, we bring you a brand new series, Chef Meets Farm!
