SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Milk Farm

Everybody loves it when a cow jumps over the moon. But we love it even more when it’s a neon cow jumping over a neon moon perched high-in-the-sky on an erector set platform on the roof of a ranch-style roadside restaurant. Looks like she might even be a tail wagger! I’m sure the ‘59 Chrysler, ’55 Mercury, ’57 Chevy and Ford pickup are enjoying the view from the front row.

According to the long and narrow signage, hamburgers, hot dogs, steaks and fried chicken may be on the menu here, but milk is definitely the main course. It’s all-you-can-drink for 10 cents. If you really like leche you can enter their famous “Who-can-drink-the-most” contest. Win or lose, don’t forget to smell your way back to the pasture to meet and marvel at the milk makers.  Cows and restaurants go so well together!

The Milk Farm originated in 1928. In 1986 it closed after, according to the legend, the wind huffed and puffed and blew a big ‘ol hole in the roof.  In 2000, what was left of the building was dismantled and put into storage with hopes that someday the Milk Farm would be resurrected.

Today, only the luna hoppin’ Holstein still stands on the property where it serves as an unofficial, yet beloved local landmark.

If the day ever comes when the Milk Farm moos again, I’ll be the first one in line for the milk-drinking contest. Unless your lactose intolerant, or even if you are, I hope you can be there when they plug in the neon cow so we can all be over the moon when she jumps the neon moon once again!

Here’s to the cow, the milk, the Milk Farm and YOU!
