Vermont Butter & Cheese Creamery, and the Castanea Foundation partner to create state’s biggest goat dairy
Here's a detailed article about the Vermont dairy farm that was recently bought by Allison Hooper of Vermont Butter and Cheese in partnership with the Castanea Foundation.

The ambitious plans for the Ayer’s Brook Goat Dairy also include providing technical assistance and breeding stock to goat dairies all over the state, helping them become more efficient and profitable.
The big goat farm (equivalent to about a 200-cow farm) will also help Vermont Technical College take a leading position in the field of milk and meat production from goats and provide hands-on experience for its students.
