Tom, the Turkey at the Jersey Cheese Shop in McLean County
When we drove up, Tom was waiting in front of the store. This cheese shop is on a dairy farm where they make the cheese in an on-farm cheese processing facility. It has windows so you can look inside and watch them making cheese. This is a family dairy farm. Mrs. Ropp showed us around the facility, including the dairy barn, where we got to feed the Jersey cows and pet a frisky calf. Jersey cows are smaller than the cows I normally see around here. We bought some cheese, which is great (they have over 40 varieties!). However, Tom was the highlight of the visit!
