Once a year, we invite our great Guests to visit and Moo for their ice cream. Visit either The Dairy Store or The Golden Jersey Inn at Young’s on Jan 22 through Jan 28, and give us your best MOOOOOOOOO!. You’ll be glad you did – a free extra dip of ice cream on your dessert at The Dairy Store or a free one-dip sundae (or mini-dessert) at The Golden Jersey Inn with your meal!
Young’s now has a mobile food trailer to get out and about in the community. 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, buses, and cars.
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 in the colder months – and we do like having some fun – so we created Doo Your Moo about 15 years ago. The concept is simple – visit us between the dates we announce in January-ish 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!
