You bet I support a veteran and you should too.

The farm is located in Carleton which ships the fresh milk from the cows to Lincoln Park for processing. A neat fact is the have in use today the original Bottling Line Equipment,,how cool is that sure just don’t make thing like they used too. The Ice Cream Parlor has been a destination for 68 years serving 3 generations for that Amazing high Butterfat Ice Cream that other companies refer to as Super Premium since the fat content averages 14 percent,,,Whoa now you know why it’s so good.

The most unique flavors are all handcrafted and filled a carton at a time down on the farm,,they always have new flavors rotating to keep those thousands of customers happy, we love to visit and set in the back under the giant shade tree with tables and benches there’s plenty of room to bring your group down on a hot summer day for that special flavor ice cream your craving. Just go up front to the retail store for a half gallon of the one you love along with some real Milk in glass bottles,Butter, Cottage Cheese and much much more.

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.

Hillbilly Iron Skillet Cornbread & Buttermilk I found it YUM

As a child a favorite late night snack was left over cast iron skillet cornbread chunked into a big glass of Buttermilk and salted to taste,,,for many years I’ve searched for a true southern eating spot around metro Detroit that has this,,, finally a great place called Zenith Lunch has it everyday along with Hillbilly steaks and Spam on the menu along with the most amazing Pineapple Upside Down cake.

$ 5 meals WOW Great Clean Friendly
For over 40 years this spotless clean country style eating spot is the gem of downriver and beyond.The meal prices will double wow you all are under $ 5 except 2 on menu and those are full plate meals with veggie’s, taters,bread and entree. Homemade chicken & dumplings, meatloaf, chicken and many more. The outstanding soups change daily and get this only $ 1.80 for a big bowl, I just don;t know how they do it. Breakfast specials under $3 and house made cakes and pies, Pineapple Upside down cake the best ever.

The menu has Bologna and Spam on it how cool is this along with cast iron skillet cornbread just like grandma used to make and comes with the meal instead of bread or 50 cent per large hot slice. Not the best surprise of all the have buttermilk which I ordered and added that corn bread to eat just as a kid in the 60’s for that late night snack, never have I see this in a eating spot in Michigan WOW SO GOOD ,,,, I will be a regular and you will too, you cant buy a burger at most places for under a 5 bucks let alone a hole dam meal and it’s all super too,
