Point of Interest Details

Matthew Mix operates one of the few remaining Caroline dairy farms. In the 1940s, Mix's father, William, purchased the farm, which had been in active use since the early 1800s. Around the time of William's purchase, the Mix family added on to the existing barn to accommodate their 50-cow dairy. Mix and more than 30 other Caroline dairy farmers joined the Dairylea Cooperative in the 1940s, while other farmers in Caroline sent their milk to Crowley or the Four County Creamery in Harford.
