The Chicago Guernsey Farm was located on Garfield Road in Hinsdale, IL. My father worked there as a dairy man in the mid-twenties and it went out of existence in the sixties. They had their own herd of guernsey cows and milked them twice daily. Interestingly, during the Second World War, they deliverd the milk on the close-in routes by horse and wagon to save gasoline and tires (which were rationed) for the further routes.
