Behind-the-Scenes with WTFCF s4, e10: A New Moo

“Where The Food Comes From” visits M&B Products, a milk bottling plant in Temple Terrace, FL (a suburb of Tampa) with its farm in Lecanto, operated by the McClellan family. Get ready for a lesson in everything from milk bottling, to dairy nutrition, and bovine reproduction!

Urban, suburban and rural areas are concepts we don’t often think about. But for the sake of humoring me and this article let’s talk about the differences.

Urban areas are located in cities and towns. They have a greater population, commercial buildings, roads, and bridges – you get the picture.

If you live in the suburbs, you are technically between the city and country. You are living in an area that is less crowded, housing is further apart, and there are minimal commercial areas. Got it?

So, what about rural? Rural areas have less infrastructure and open countryside with a smaller population. Okay, so by now you may be asking yourselves why this is important.

Where The Food Comes From visited M&B Products, a milk bottling plant in Temple Terrace, FL with its farm in Lecanto, FL, May 2. Temple Terrace is considered a suburb of Tampa. So, the question now becomes why is there a milk processing/packing plant in Temple Terrace?

Our day began with meeting the President & CEO of M&B Products/Dairy, Dale McClellan.

Dale is an amazing man and gave us a brief tour of the office and talked about the bottles, the 90 monitors used to keep an eye at it all, and the history of the farm.

Unfortunately, we can’t buy M&B’s milk at our local grocery store — yet. But they’ve recently started packing for the grocery store and we’ll be looking for it! READ MORE
