Real California Milk Mom to Mom Tour

I always say I have a thirst for knowledge. I feel there is a lot of information out there for me to take in and I can never get enough. For this very reason, I was excited to be invited to participate in the Real California Milk Mom to Mom Tour. This event was put together by the California Milk Advisory Board. I must admit I had no idea that California is considered to be the nation’s largest dairy state. I was really caught off guard because I live in Wisconsin and one of the major things we are known for is our dairy. Wisconsin in second when it comes to the overall production of butter and milk with California being number one since 1993. It is the second largest cheese producer. After talking about  this with my family I became more curious to just how this works and wanted to learn more.

The Real California Milk Mom to Mom Tour, invited a group of bloggers including:

The purpose of this trip was to give us the opportunity to become familiar with the California dairy industry.  There are 1,752 dairy farms in California and 99% of them are family owned. These farms help to provided 22% of the milk for the country. Real California Milk recently launched their new website which offers lots of information including recipes and profiles of diary farmers. It was pretty cool that we were able to meet some of these families and talk with them.

Make sure you come back and visit because I have a few more posts coming up covering all the things I saw and learned while in California. We were given the chance to talk  about nutrition, animal care and environmental sustainability with some of some of the leading experts in those fields so I learned a lot! We toured two dairy farms and  ate delicious fresh food made with Real California Milk.

As a participant in this event I was provided with  an all expenses covered trip that included  food, travel and lodging. I was not asked to write about this trip but I could not resist because I love to share what I learn.
