Hanford dairy to create own creamery

 Local dairy farmer Noel Rosa thought it was ridiculous. There are so many cows in the area, but if you want to go to a dairy and get fresh milk, you can't. Instead, at the grocery store, there's no way of knowing where the milk you buy came from, how long it took to get there or who exactly produced it. "We thought it was crazy," said the third-generation dairyman, who runs MF Rosa Dairy on Second Avenue with his brother Rolland. So the Rosa brothers decided to do something unprecedented in Kings County in an age of huge, impersonal milk processing. They're starting a mini-creamery, for their own cows, to distribute their own milk directly to retailers. (more) Feb. 9, 2012 Hanford Sentinel
