If you've dreamed of pouring cotton candy-flavored milk over your Cheerios or wondered if milk could taste like root beer, look no further than Shatto Milk Company in Osborn. Barbara and Leroy Shatto opened this small, family-operated dairy farm in 2003—which, in addition to funky flavors, offers plain milk and more traditional flavors: chocolate, banana, strawberry, and orange.
Ice cream, butter, cheese curds, fruit punch, and other items are also available in their country store and in many grocery stores in the Kansas City area. All of the dairy comes straight from the farm.
Visit the farm, Monday through Friday from 8 am to 6 pm and Saturday 8 am to 4 pm.—Alex Stewart
