Olivia Harris of a.m. Fog Shows Off One of The Homestead Creamery Varieties
Afton, Virginia

Most of you know by now that Yvette and I are expecting a child in the fall of this year. Yea, she’s been drinking the milk lots to keep up the calcium! She’s always liked Homestead Creamery milk. You know, it comes in those classic glass bottles, not far off of the kind the milkman used to deliver in simpler times. Most of the stores around here carried it, then one day she walked in and no more! Gone.

Folks this is one popular brand of milk and it’s the best around. No artificial hormones, and about as close to the cow as it comes! Yea, move over happy steer, we’ve got the happy cow now! As soon as Ken and Yvonne Harris up at a.m. Fog heard about this they jumped all over it! And, yep! They have the whole line of Homestead Creamery milk products in the familiar glass bottles, right there in their market on the Nelson-Albemarle County line on Route 151.

Nothing’s quite as good as a cold glass of milk from one of those chilled bottles!

And now you can get Homestead Creamery milk just up the road at a.m. Fog. along with all of your vegetables, plants and nursery needs to boot!

You can always visit them on the web at or call ’em at 540-456-7100

Mmmmmm, so there’s mystery in Nellysford. A regular bovine CSI it is! Nelly the cow at the Nelson Farmers Market has lost her head! We noticed this the other day and have gotten several phone calls about it as well. Not to worry, the cow police are on it! See you at the market this weekend on Saturday morning.

Wednesday was considerably warmer than Tuesday. With sunny skies and southerly winds the temperature approached the 90 degree mark, but fell just short of it. On Thursday most locations will easily see the lower 90’s for afternoon highs. A slight chance for evening thunderstorms returns around dark Thursday with better chances over the holiday weekend.

A front will move across the area around the 4th of July and then become stationary over the region for the entire holiday weekend. With the front in the area, that gives us chances for thunderstorms at most anytime. We won’t have widespread rain at any given time, and many locations will remain dry, but the chances are definitely increased beginning Friday through Tuesday.

I’ll have a complete holiday weekend outlook in our Friday morning cast tomorrow.
