The States Best Dairy and Ice Cream
A visit to the downriver area is not complete without a stop to the Calders Bros. Dairy. A family run operation since started in 1946 serving the best of milk, butter and ice cream products. They raise a special herd Holstein, Brown Swiss and Jersey cows to give you the highest butterfat and protein levels in any products made right here in Michigan. The farm and country store is located in Carleton which offers farm tours and daily feeding for all to enjoy. The classic ice cream is served year round along with the store open 7 days a week 7am to 10pm. The chocolate milk and butter is the creamiest in Michigan and the seasonal eggnog just came in which is a must try for your holiday guests to try. I know I've tried some of those other dairy farms and I truly think Calders is a classic and the best Michigan has to offer, hey it's close to I-75 and I-94 just a short hop off on Southfield, you really don't have a good excuse not to try the best. See my pictures and enjoy as my family have for three generations.
