True mustard lovers know that February 18, is even more special than that other February holiday with all the red hearts. Of course, it’s ELM FARM OLLIE DAY, celebrating the first flight in an airplane by a cow on that date in 1930.
Did you know that NASA honored Elm Farm Ollie’s historic flight in 2010, the seventieth anniversary, by putting a Guernsey, a Holstein, and a Jersey in a rocket ship and sending it into orbit? Yes, it was the “Herd Shot ‘Round the World.”
To celebrate, send your best bud a Bovine Beauties Gift Box (BVN33) featuring three mustards to honor three famous cows (Ollie, Mrs. O’Leary’s Cow, and the Cow That Jumped Over the Moon). Includes a cow spreader, an Elm Farm Ollie greeting card, and a CD recording of Madame Butterfat, the musical story of Elm Farm Ollie.
You won’t find this anywhere else. Not that we haven’t tried.
