We moved here to our farm nearly 20 years ago from PA. When we were getting ready to move we needed to find a market for our milk. We decided to sell our milk to Dairylea Cooperative Inc. So for the past nearly 20 years a milk truck has come every other day and picked up our milk for Dairylea Cooperative. A few years ago our neighbor started sending his milk to Agri-Mark Cooperative. We had talked a few times about what he was getting paid for his milk and it seemed he was usually getting a little better price for his milk. So, when the Agri-Mark inspector stopped in and asked if I would be interested in taking a look at what they could do for me I said I would like to do that. Long story short, they were able to offer us a better price for our milk than what we were currently getting so we decided to switch to shipping our milk to Agri-Mark. It took a little while to jump through all the hoops to get out of our contract with Dairylea but as of today we are officially producing for milk for Agri-Mark Cooperative. So today was historic in the fact that we are now shipping our milk to a new cooperative after being with Dairylea for almost 20 years.
Hello, if you are a follower of this blog you will remember that Angela was doing the blogs. Well, things have gotten busy for her and so Stan, her dad, is filling in for now. I am not as techno savy as her so I am not sure how this will work but I am going to try and post on a hopefully regular basis.
