These are pictures from yesterday's tour of the Jeni's Ice Cream production facility in Columbus Ohio. It was offered as part of Local Matters Local Foods week. The quotes are from Jeni Britton Bauer, dairy heir of Jeni's and founding member of Local Matters. More events are scheduled for the rest of the week including what promises to be an exciting local drinks tasting at House Wine Thursday evening and the Harvest Ball Friday.
