I remember those phone numbers. Interesting spelling on the kind of farm that produces cow's milk.

Was the Ideal Farm Dairy (or is that Diary?) located on highway 74 East of Hamlet, directly across from where Coco-Cola would later build a bottling plant? We had milk delivered to our house on present-day Gin Mill Road way back in the early 50s and it was delivered by the dairy located on #74.

But I don't think the regulations we have today would permit milk delivered door to door in bottles capped and sealed only by a thick piece of paper pressed into the mouth of the jar. And the milk wasn't homogenized either, which was a good thing I suppose because we used to pour the thick head of cream into a separate container until we had enough to churn into butter. Good stuff, that butter!

Bruce, it was located on 74 East of town across from the Coca Cola plant. The barn is still there today.
