Calumet Co. farm celebrates June dairy month


PIPE - June is Dairy month in Wisconsin, and an area farm decided it's time to celebrate.

People gathered at LaClare farms in Pipe Sunday.

Alice in Dairyland even made a special appearance.

The farm also showcased local wines and a cheesemaker.

Cheese pairing events are scheduled for later this month.

The farm's manager, Greg Hedrich, says the facility was designed for visitors to get a better glimpse of how farming is done.

"You can look out at the windows into the milking area, and also you can look directly into the cheese aging area." Hedrich said. "We have windows in a lot of the places, so its not just a come and see things, but actually be a part of our facility and experience it."

The facility also features a restaurant and shop where you can buy any of the items featured at the events.
