Last week, thirty members of the American Dairy Association and Dairy Council (ADADC) visited Byrne Hollow Farm in Cortland, NY for a tour of the Yogurt Plant.
The fun-filled day began at one of the 278 local family farms that supplies milk to Byrne Dairy and Byrne Hollow Farm.
Sue and Vaughn Sherman of the Jerry Dell Organic Farm, Dryden NY, along with several Byrne employees led the group though the farm discussing Conventional and Organic Farming, viewing the facilities, and visiting the baby calves.
After, the group made their way to Byrne Hollow Farm.
Opened in 2014, Byrne Hollow Farm (both the site and brand name) is a cultured products plant specializing in Yogurt, Greek Yogurt, and Sour Cream.
Kate Byrne, Director of Marketing at Byrne Dairy, led the tour through the plant, which is constructed with floor to ceiling glass mezzanines to enable viewing of the entire process from incoming raw milk to packaging.
The day concluded with lunch and samples of Byrne Hollow Greek Yogurt.
The ADADC is a nonprofit organization that supports dairy farmers in NY, Northern NJ, and NE Pennsylvania. Focusing on Health & Wellness, the ADADC works with Schools, Retailers, Health Professionals, and the media to promote dairy sales.
