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

We won’t have the audio this morning, but it may be back later this afternoon, certainly Friday.

A quick thanks to Heidi Crandall for this morning’s beautiful pic of a fawn in Roseland. Yep, we have plenty of deer here in Nelson, but there’s always something so nice about watching them out in the fields, especially the little ones! Thanks for the photo Heidi!

Wednesday was more or less a cloudy day with thunderstorms in the afternoon. As predicted, some of the storms became severe for a short time. The northern part of the county stayed pretty dry, while the southern sections near Roseland got almost an inch of rain.

Look for an isolated shower this morning then partly sunny skies move in for the rest of the day with seasonal temps. The remainder of the forecast looks generally dry with only isolated afternoon thunderstorms through early next week.
