Meramec Traveler – M&T Farms, Cool Cow Cheese

Tell me now. Where can you go to stay in a beautiful, unique Bed and Breakfast, don your muck boots and milk a cow. Oh, and by the way, you can also adopt a cow or sample some yummy, artisan cheeses and wine and perhaps get a first-hand lesson in local lore! Well, M & T Farms AKA Cool Cow Cheese, outside of Owensville, of course!

This amazing little farm has it all! Great food, great service, scenery that includes nature’s contributions, as well as a gorgeous 1800’s home with plenty of other stuff to do. If you want to know what it is like to “live on a real farm,” mosey on down to Cool Cow.

If you can’t do the B & B, at least stop by to sample the wonderful offerings.

Owner Tom Blatchford, who was trained in Vermont, and his wife, Martha, run the place, along with son, Ben. Ben has training in cheese manufacturing and puts it to good use making all those wonderful morsels. From gouda to jack, I have a hard time deciding on a favorite so I usually have to get a variety!

Now if you partake of the B & B, don’t be surprised when the resident rooster wakes you at dawn – it’s part of the deal–ambiance extraordinaire–and the rooster takes his job VERY seriously!
