|Taste testing at the AE Dairy plant was the highlight of my tour.|
I was also taken on a tour through the entire facility, seeing start to finish of how the dairy creates each product. If you’ve ever watched How It’s Made you would be just as fascinated as I was. The first step is attaining raw milk. AE does not own the actual farms and milking cows, they purchase the raw milk from Iowa farmers. Miriam explained that this separation is actually very important because each container of raw milk that comes in is tested before it is unloaded and if it doesn’t meet all the AE standards it is rejected. AE’s slogan is “ridiculously high standards” and it’s not just a figure of speech, at AE they test at every level of production to make sure their products are the highest quality they can possibly be.
