The American spirit lives on at a 300-year-old, cream-line dairy farm, where a farmer is working around the clock to bottle his own milk after his processor told him to dump it. Locals are lining up to support him.When Ben Brown’s dairy processor told him they could no longer buy his milk, he got to work bottling it himself.


Brown’s Whoa Nellie Dairy farm has been providing high-quality, cream-line milk since the 1700s.
