Creamery business at risk
In its brief history, the Norwich Farm Creamery has developed an outstanding reputation as a community member and for its milk, cheese and yogurt. That business may now be in jeopardy, because Vermont Technical College (VTC) is selling the Norwich Farm, where the Creamery is a tenant, to the Upper Valley Land Trust (UVLT). "Saving Norwich Farm Creamery" is a petition on change.org, and Bring the Cows Back, Norwich, a Facebook page. The Norwich Farm Creamery is also agenda item 5 for the next Selectboard meeting. Neighbors are concerned that UVLT is giving short shrift to the Creamery's plan to restart dairy operations at the farm, without which the Norwich Farm Creamery may need to close.
