You may be wondering where Vernon Yoder is in these photos… and here’s the deal: because Vernon is Amish, he didn’t want any pictures of his face or his family. You’ll see some hands throughout, but he said that was ok.
The Yoder family, which runs a farm in Ohio where they produce raw milk, was incredibly warm and welcoming and they brought us into their home to try some tasty treats. We each got a glass of their milk. It was incredibly creamy (though not thick) and the flavor was more subtle (not as sweet as the milk I normally get from the store).
With this milk, the Yoders also make mozzarella, which you can see being demonstrated in some of the above pictures. The tour ended with slices of hot, fresh out of the oven bread. It really doesn’t get much better than that.
Disclaimer: This Silent Sunday is a part of a series of posts that I will be doing on some spots around Ohio. I was recently invited to take part in an all-expense paid tour of the area. The views on my blog are my own and in no way was I monetarily compensated for writing this entry (or required to post, for that matter).
