The Guernsey cow, with naturally yellow milk, is native to the island of Guernsey in Europe. The first appearance of the Guernsey was in 1830 in Boston Massachusetts. In 1921, the Golden Guernsey Products trademark was a milk bottle cap that enclosed the jug in two circles and had their brand imprinted around the circle. They first used the label on milk produced at Halfred and Gledka Farms of Chagrin Falls and what is now Shaker Heights, a suburb of Cleveland, OH.
