Fans of dairy products of all types and tastes will soon be able to get a little closer to the processes and animals that help make those delectable treats.

This Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., attendees at the Howell Living History Farm will be able to attend the farm’s annual Dairy Day.

Throughout the day, visitors can meet the farm’s milking goats, see a cow and calf, and help farmers make cheese, butter and ice cream.

Milking demonstrations will be at 10:30 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. In the farmhouse kitchen, there will be demonstrations of cheese and butter making at 11 a.m. and again at 2:30 p.m.

Ice cream making – and tasting – will take place near the ice house at 1:30 p.m.
