I've been to Busch Brewery in Williamsburg, VA, Sunshine cookie factory in Cleveland OH, Hershey's in PA, and a chocolate factory in Vegas (It's run by a branch of the Mars family but can't remember the name right now.) Cheese factory in Middlefield OH. I remeber going to a produce farm as a child and watching them harvest celery with my grandparents. They were farmers so I knew the basics of growing food but the scale of the celery farm was massive. I also remember Grandpa having milk cows and he had a pasteruization room. The big shiney stainless steel tanks were fascinating and the milk tasted so good! He would give me a tin cup of warm milk from the tanks before filling the milkcans for the dairy to pick up. I was totally afraid of the cows but remember standing in the doorway to the barn watching the milking machines. I have a picture of me and Grandpa with a cow being milked and you can see me leaning as far away from that cow as could!
