Carolina Farmhouse Dairy
– Bahama, NC
At the state’s first-ever yogurt dairy farm, the Hamrick family is whipping up something fresh. Cindy Hamrick looks out at her Jersey cows, clustered around a hay bale that her son Brandon has just offloaded from a trailer, and she can’t help but smile. “We love Jerseys because they’re so stinkin’ sweet,” she says.
Jersey cows are known for their big brown eyes, their gentle nature, and their rich, high-quality milk. But Cindy just knows them by name: Emily (“She’s a sweet girl,” Cindy says), Videri (after the state motto), Peanut and Pistachio (you can guess the theme).
Cindy and her three sons, Brandon, Adam, and Chase, started Carolina Farmhouse Dairy in the northern Durham County community of Bahama in 2016. Their signature product: yogurt.
