Chocolate Milk and a Moon Pie

One of my favorite things in the world is chocolate milk. When I was a little girl my Pa would go to town and get me some chocolate milk (not an RC cola) and a Moon Pie almost every afternoon. The chocolate milk wasn't in plastic bottles, but in the carton. We would warm up the Moon Pie in the microwave and share it. Then wash it down with the chocolate milk. Sweet memories!

Whole Milk and Chocolate milk from Hatcher's Family Dairy.

This past week I had the opportunity to go to the Hatcher's Family Dairy in College Grove, TN. I have been out there numerous times for work. The Hatchers have been in the dairy business for a long time before they decided to start bottling their own milk. They now have a processing facility, retail store, do farm tours, and are experimenting with making their own ice cream.

Over a year ago, two of my out of state friends came down to visit Tennessee. We went all over Nashville and middle Tennessee. One of the stops was Hatcher's Family Dairy and they loved it!

Hatcher's Chocolate Milk is some of the best chocolate milk I have ever drank! It is so rich and thick. The Whole Milk is great too. Make sure you shake it real good, cause all of the cream is at the top. One thing that I love about buying milk straight from the farmer is that expiration date is longer. You don't have to ship it from the farm to the processing plant to the grocery store to your home. You should defiantly make a trip out to Hatcher's Family Dairy. If you can't make it out to the farm, you can get their milk in some stores. Check out their website for a listing of stores and to find out more .
