Now that spring is here and the mornings are cool and sunny, it is a perfect time to celebrate your local dairy farmers. Take some time to browse your local mom-and-pop shops. Small mom-and-pop businesses create economic growth and hometown pride. That’s why every year on March 29 we acknowledge the more than 33 million small businesses in the US on National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day. To honor the long hours, hard work, and dedication it takes to run a small business, head to your favorite small business to say thank you, or find your next local haunt.
Local Dairy Farmers
For those unfamiliar with the term, a mom-and-pop store simply refers to a small business run by families. And a great example of a mom-and-pop business is your local dairy farm. These families are certainly hard-working! Several dairy farms in the Southeast have opened their doors to families through their own creameries and food windows, tours, or stores and stalls.
To honor National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day, shop local, share your appreciation, and spread the word about the great businesses in town. Support the businesses in your community. Check out a local spot you always see but never visit, then tell all your friends. It never hurts to share your favorite small businesses online. And with more plans outside, these local shops mean you can show up to your next picnic or outdoor brunch with a delicious new find that will be fondly remembered by friends.
Raise a Glass to Dairy Good Mom and Pop Shop
Mom-and-pop businesses care about their customers and offer products that feel more unique than what you find in a national chain. They also have a real impact on their community. By spending your dollars at a mom-and-pop, you can make a real difference in your local economy. So this spring, support your local dairy farmers, their families and their amazing businesses.
