Today, I tried it from Cooper's Hilltop Farm in Rochdale, Mass. Hilltop is a small on farm dairy. The store is about the size of a large bedroom, and a similar sized processing room opens into it. Nothing fancy. They still sell milk in returnable glass bottles. The eggnog is superior to store eggnog, and has sugar instead of HFCS (but it does have corn syrup). I saw a NY and a CT plate in the lot out of a total of only 4 cars. They do have a following.
I still think that Pearson's Elmhurst Dairy in Millbury Mass is the very best though. Pearson's has an even smaller on farm store than Cooper's. Although both have secret formulas (according to the local paper), I suspect that the Pearson product is made with more cream and less milk. The Cooper product, therefore, may be better for you, but when we are talking eggnog, I doubt that any eggnog is "good" for you.
