We are doing all kinds of delicious and fun things to celebrate Young’s birthday. We know it’s winter – but we have a lot of good reasons to visit Young’s Friday – Monday Jan 12-15. Plan to bring your family and friends for a nice winter break – and say hello to the goats – they can get lonely this time of year!
The Ohio Restaurant Association Education Foundation supports hospitality and culinary education for students in Ohio. Young’s is a great place to learn – there aren’t many places where you can visit an actual farm milking cows, cheese and ice cream production, two different restaurants and catering for picnics of 50 to 2,000 or more.
Young’s will have a mobile food trailer to get out and about in our community in 2017. Young’s on the Moove is a fun way to promote our farm, introduce a lot of Guests to our homemade ice cream and farmstead cheese, and better serve our Guests on the farm during our busy, large events.
We have been recycling our cooking oil for over 15 years. After we cook our cheese curds(!), French fries, onion rings, chicken and so forth, the oil goes back to the manufacturer using special equipment that filters it and otherwise cleans it for many other uses – animal feed, cosmetics, and soap – and just in the past few years recycled cooking oil has been used to burn in diesel trucks, busses and cars.
Young’s specializes in putting the entire experience of visiting our farm into a fun, easy and delicious group picnic. We take care of groups from 50 to 5,000 people!
We’re always happy when we figure out what’s next – and then our Guests agree! We’ve tried a lot of things over the years – new activities, flavors of ice cream, menu items and more. Some have been a big hit, some not (and we stop doing those quickly!). Here are a few stories.
Young’s is a fun place to work – but it’s also hard work. We serve more than a million Guest visits a year. We are very busy on most weekends and on our special events – and that’s when we need our Staff to help us deliver on our mission – We Create Fun for Our Customers.
We are called Young’s Jersey Dairy because we chose to have Jersey cows on our farm. We get asked why Jersey’s? Why not have the most popular cow in the US – Holsteins (the black & white dairy cows you often see in our area)?
We get a little lonely this time of year – and we do like having some fun – so we created Doo Your Moo about 15 years ago. The concept is simple – visit us the week of Jan 30-Feb 5 and give us your absolute best Moo.
Before it was called being green, we began to figure out ways to reduce our waste and try to use less energy and resources. Our origin is growing up on a farm, and small farmers tend to look for ways to save!
