Barstow’s & Cabot Creamery: A Circular Economy in Action
June 16, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Presenter: Jed Davis, Director of Sustainability for Cabot Creamery and the Agri-Mark dairy cooperative.
Hear about the Real Farm Power project and how stewardship on the farm, sustainability in manufacturing, and communication to consumers closes loops for renewable energy, resource recovery and upcycling. Jed grew up on a dairy farm in Central Massachusetts and has worked for Cabot since 1991, the past 9 years in pursuit of Cabot’s sustainability goal of “Living within our means and ensuring the means to live.” Jed and his wife and small “herd” of children live in Waterbury, Vt.
June is Dairy Month! And all month we will be celebrating all things dairy – from cheese to yogurt, from ice cream to the good old fashioned glass of milk. But we will also celebrate by learning about dairy through the Dairy Month Lecture Series hosted by Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery and Barstow’s Longview Farm. Learn from experts and professionals about dairy nutrition, the dairy industry, sustainable farming, land use and open space, milk processing, and animal health. Join the conversation about the food in your fridge at your neighborhood farm! Tours begin and presentations are hosted at Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery (172 Hockanum Road).
Going to be late? Not a problem! Please don’t be deterred by arriving late to these presentations. Our speakers are prepared to have people arrive late and leave early – or to eat dinner while you listen!
Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery and Barstow’s Longview Farm is owned and operated by sixth and seventh generation Barstow’s. Nestled at the base of Skinner State Park and right alongside the Connecticut River, the dairy farm has been a part of the landscape since 1806.
Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery offers homemade baked goods and pies, lunch from local ingredients, farm fresh produce, farm raised beef, ice cream, and scenic views of protected farmland from the porch and dining room. This family friendly store is open daily year round. Come meet your neighborhood dairy farmer!
