In the small northern Michigan town of Kalkaska there survives a small,
>family-run dairy called Shelter Family Dairy.  They have around 40 cows and
>bottle their own milk in glass, returnable bottles. The milk has a layer of
>thick cream on the top and their chocolate milk is absolutely fabulous!
>Their motto on their bottles is:  "Our cows aren't on drugs--but they are
on
>grass!".  They use no antibiotics or hormones and treat their cows with
>kindness and respect.  They've run their family business for decades now,
>very successfully.  They've earned the respect and support of people
>throughout northern Michigan.
