As a follow-up to our Producer of the Month article highlighting our neighbors at the Commonwealth Dairy, makers of Green Mountain Greek yogurt, we want to emphasize that yogurt containers are accepted by the transfer stations and roll-off locations served by the Windham Solid Waste Management District. In fact, all plastic containers 1-7 are recycled by WSWMD. Please Recycle!

Tucked away from major throughways, between native oaks and juvenile Japanese maples, in a complex with Omega Optical, a branch of the Austine School, and a residential community, Commonwealth Dairy is subtle and unassuming. Its LEED-compliant facility emits modernity from every pore – clear, open corridors connecting pressurized rooms with clean stainless steel vats and piping, and everything pneumatically controlled by neon computer screens every step of the way: the temperature of the raw milk; the pH of the product during fermentation; and the balance of cream, whey, and milk protein in the vat.
