Local dairy, open since 1854, cuts buying from local farms - Brandon Reporter

The reduced market for milk has forced a local dairy to cut back on purchases from small, neighboring farms. The backlash on social media has been painful.

“That decision was met with some backlash on social media, accusing the venerable dairy of choosing to buying milk from larger, commercial farms, but co-owner Christa Thomas said the decision to cut back on supply is the nature of the dairy business. “With the virus, the market is down and we can only buy as much milk as we need,” she said. “We need to let farmers go if we can’t use their milk. The law is that we have to give them 90 days notice in order to find another buyer.”"
