Valley Shepherd Creamery Ditches Their Van for a Bike and Trailer
Valley Shepherd Creamery, a name you may recognize from last week's ACS competition where they took second place overall for their Crema De Blue, has ditched their van for a bike in NYC. The creamery owns a shop in Park Slope, and each week they set up booths at local farmer's markets. Now that they've found a bicycle trailer, they transport all supplies via bike:
Now, with two markets successfully set up, run and broken down without a big clunky van under her belt, Safer believes the transition to the bike trailers as their means of transportation is the only way to go for local businesses looking to cut down on costs.
“Every vendor at the market dealing with a truck looked at our bike trailer and said, ‘Holy Mackerel, that’s a great idea!’” Safer explained.
