Trip to the Dairy

Took Big Red out to the dairy today. The dairy is owned by the folks at Straus Dairy. They produce organic milk, and assorted dairy products. Albert Straus is the overseer of the business. A good man with a good heart. Here is a link to their site .

Being an organic dairy, means that the dairy manure the cows produce is also organic. This is the raw material we compost and then feed to our worms.

The truck is a 1968 International Harvester dump truck. It has a flat head six cylinder engine that produces all of 165 hp. We found it at an auction. It had been faithfully maintained on a farm here in Sonoma for about 45 years. She is a good old truck with a wonderful horn. In fact, the sound of the horn was worth the cost of the truck.
