A new grant program is making over $300,000 available to Vermont farmers and it's due to the success of Commonwealth Dairy in Brattleboro.
Commonwealth Dairy makes Greek and Swiss-style yogurt. They sell it under Green Mountain Creamery and package it for other retailers. They produce more than 125,000 of yogurt a week and just finished a 12 million dollar expansion project at their Brattleboro facility. Now they are helping farmers who belong to the St. Albans Coop.
