Say it ain't so!

Our local dairy plant, just two miles or so down the road is closing...  After 77 years in business.  We have made it a point to purchase their products to help support them.  While the brand will still be available, the current location will now be simply a distribution for milk and products coming in from other areas in Iowa.  What's worse, there are many people out of jobs.  And now we will no longer have milk trucks rumbling past the house every day.
I wonder what our dairy neighbor will do....


  1. I know it was sad to hear about it..The same with Amana...Our jaws dropped to the floor when we heard about the two businesses..

    Hope your getting the things you wanted to get done..The heat is going to be real bad this coming week.. I opened the door to let the dog out this morning and I could just feel the humidity...UGH..

    Have a great day...Lisa

  2. Thats terrible news. I hope you can find another source for local milk. I feel sorry for the people losing their jobs.

  3. Big Business marches on. Bah-humbug!

  4. That is terrible news. I hate to hear local businesses closing. Especially one as important as this one.

  5. That is happening around here too..a lot, it seems. I hate it.

    Hot out there already..take care!


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
