Thuli Family Creamery in Darlington, WI
From the folks that brought the Wisconsin dairy industry of stainless steel processing equipment, Darlington Dairy Supply, comes Thuli Family Creamery, a solar operation set to offer Swiss-style yogurt, cream-line milk, (real) gelato, and drinkable yogurt this summer.
Of course with Ted Thuli - featured in 2010 on the hit History Channel show, American Pickers, nothing is ever done in a routine manner. Visitors will notice a giant shark head greeting them as they approach the creamery - the same shark head that was used at the 1974 premiere party of the movie "Jaws". Its missing front tooth will be filled with foam cheese. The creamery boasts an attractive wooden viewing deck for visitors, and the Thulis imagine school children and groups will visit often.
