"Got Milk? Local Dairies in the Dublin Area" Exhibit at Heritage Park & Museums
Wednesday, April 18, 2018
Discover how local farmers contributed to California surpassing Wisconsin as the nation's leading dairy state. Local farmers and their families did it all, from growing the feed for the cows to processing the milk into cream, butter, and cheese to marketing and delivering it to consumers. Individual farmers joined together to form cooperatives in the early 1900s. Dublin also played a part in the development of modern, scientific mass production and mass distribution, with the Foremost Dairy Research Center, which opened in 1966. See vintage milk bottles, cartons, bottle caps, and modern dairy equipment, some on loan from the California State Parks Dairy Collection.
