The guide is a thorough collection of resources for farm families interested in capitalizing on value-added dairy products and is available free online only.

Dunaway, of the Hometown Creamery Revival, evaluates the pros and cons of more than 150 resources, from the most current information in print and online to obscure, out-of-print publications that are useful for their timeless knowledge.  Resources formats include books, periodicals, videos, Web sites and others on a wide range of topics related to farmstead dairy processing.
