Our successful dairy drive-thru events have been recognized statewide and are the subject of an award-winning article in the weekly ag publication, Country Folks. The article was written by Troy Bishopp, who attended SUNY Morrisville.
Despite inclement weather, nothing stopped five drive-thru events, which were held during April and May and served more than 2,600 vehicles.
Patrons, who remained in their cars, received one pre-packaged bag of dairy items and milk. Proper physical distancing, safety and public health hygiene practices were adhered to throughout the event.
