Pay here. VY R. Woodall, manager,
Although the Creamery ha.- not hail
o formal opening, it has been in op
eration fur the past few weeks, and is
now running behind with orders. This
is largely accounted for because of
the lack of milk and cream in the
n.iituy. aiiit also that the products
have .found a ready market.
At prevent approximately .2,000
gail.m-- of i.e cream ar,. made weekly,
and a jut 1,500 pounds of butter.
When running full capacity, this will
he m.-ic i-'eil to about seven thousand
gallon,, ice cream and .4,000 pounds
nf butti r... v
Two 'crearti routes: have been '. es
tablished and in one day 152 gallons
of cream were received. The routes
are being operated by Locke Howell
and .lean Smathers-
Mr. Woodall stated that at pres
ent about $500 is being spent weekly
in .the 'county for milk and cream, and
that within a short time this amount
would be doubled.
The . '.products of the creamery are
U'tng sold in Asheville. Canton,
Waynesville, and Sylva, together with
nil the territory between these places.
Une, truck is now in service and an
other one is being constructed and will
be u.-cd as soon as received. Cury
1'eah, of Sylva, is driver at present
"r. No. 1.
Checks are passed out each Friday
fer the products sold to the creamery.
The three items that are being made
at present are Carolina Grade "A"
he i; .earn, and Carolina butter and
hatter milk. Only grade "A" milk
i- u-o.l in the manufacture of ice
cieain. This is the only plant within
the Carolinas that does this, it was
said. All of the milk going into the
ae etcam passes the inspection of E.
1. Hinton. local sanitary officer.
The Western Carolina Creamery is
the only creamery between Asheville
ami Georgia, and prior to the estab
lishment here, all the creamery pro
duct, were shipped into the county.

'all operations in the manufacture of
ice cream and the general manage
ment of the plant. .
Miss Ethel Leopard is bookkeeper
and makes tests in the laboratory,
where each "batch" of cream and but
ter is tested before being placed on
the market.
The creamery is in a new building
built by the owners of the creamery,
and is modern in every respect, and
is equipped with new machinery
th.-'-Jk'i.out. The building is so ar
