Community comes together for running club Device allows Briggs to join classmates By  WEYLAND  JOYNER MIDDLEBURY  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  Every  Tuesday   and   Thursday   afternoon   this   spring,   Dan   Briggs   had   track   practice.   For   the   18-­year-­old   from   Addison   this   was  a  new  experience.   %ULJJVZDVERUQZLWKVSLQDELÂżGD a   congenital   spinal   disorder   that   re-­ quires   him   to   wear   leg   braces   and   keeps   him   from   running   or   walking   long  distances. But  when  he  decided  he  wanted  to   join   his   schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   running   club,   pro-­ gram   instructors,   community   mem-­ bers  and  his  teammates  came  togeth-­ er   in   an   extraordinary   way   to   make   his  dream  a  reality. Briggs  is  a  student  at  the  Diversi-­ ÂżHG 2FFXSDWLRQV 3URJUDP DQ DOWHU-­ native  high  school  special  education   program  in  Middlebury.  Last  spring,   WKH SURJUDP LQWURGXFHG 'LYHUVLÂżHG 2FFXSDWLRQV RQ WKH 5XQ RU '225 a  running  club  in  which  seven  of  the   programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  students  trained  for  and  ran   in  the  Crowley  Road  Race  in  Rutland   IRUWKHÂżUVWWLPH7KHDFWLYLW\ZDVVR

New  solar  farm  slated   for  New  Haven  parcel

Perine set to retire as Middlebury bank CEO By  JOHN  FLOWERS MIDDLEBURY  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  When  G.  Ken-­ neth  Perine  joined  the  National  Bank   of   Middlebury   in   1987   as   a   vice   president   and   residential   mortgage   lender,  he  thought  he  had  found  his   perfect  career  perch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It  was  all  I  expected,â&#x20AC;?  Perine  said   during   a   recent   interview.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   just   wanted   to   work   for   the   hometown   bank.â&#x20AC;? Eventually  the  Middlebury  native   found   that   he   would   not   only   work   for  it,  he  would  lead  it. Perine   was   named   president   of   the  183-­year-­old  bank  in  January  of   1992  and  ushered  in  a  period  of  tre-­ mendous  growth  for  the  institution. Now   itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   time   for   another   transi-­ tion. Perine   will   phase   out   his   duties   as  chief  executive  by  the  end  of  this   year,  and  will  then  begin  working  on   special  projects  at  the  bank  on  a  part-­ time  basis  during  the  next  two  years.   Executive   Vice   President   Caroline   Carpenter   will   succeed   him   as   only   the  11th  president  in  the  bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  long   history. While  the  National  Bank  of  Mid-­ dlebury  only  formally  announced  the   leadership  transition  this  week,  it  has   been  in  the  works  for  the  better  part   of  10  years  as  part  of  the  institutionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   long   range   planning,   according   to   Perine,  who  will  turn  63  in  October. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You  get  to  a  point  in  your  career   where   you   say,   â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   time,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?   Perine   said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;And  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  time  for  me.â&#x20AC;? Perine   believes   â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   timeâ&#x20AC;?   for   a   number  of  reasons,  including  the  de-­ sire  to  spend  more  time  with  family   and   to   work   on   various   household   projects.   But   he   also   believes   itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   time   because   he   knows   Carpenter   is   ready   to   become   the   top   admin-­ istrator   of   the   bank.   She   has   been   part  of  the  Addison  County  banking   community  since  1991,  serving  as  a   mortgage  originator  at  Vermont  Fed-­ eral  Bank  for  six  years  prior  to  join-­ ing  National  Bank  of  Middlebury  in   1997.  She  is  well  versed  in  the  tech-­ nology  side  of  the  banking  business,   which  is  becoming  increasingly  im-­ portant   in   the   institutionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   daily   op-­ eration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   board   is   very   appreciative   of   Kenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   leadership   of   our   bank,â&#x20AC;?   said   Sarah   Stahl,   chairwoman   of   the   bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   board   of   directors.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;His   outstanding   service   continues   a   tra-­ dition   of   long-­serving   leaders.   We   DUH FRQÂżGHQW &DUROLQH ZLOO SLFN XS where   Ken   leaves   off   and   will   en-­ sure  the  bank  continues  to  bring  real   value  to  the  communities  we  serve.â&#x20AC;? A   graduate   of   Middlebury   Union   High   School   (class   of   1969)   and   Dartmouth   College   (class   of   1973),   Perine  began  his  professional  bank-­ ing  career  in  1978,  as  assistant  to  the   manager  of  the  Middlebury  Savings   and   Loan   Association.   He   joined   Vermont   Federal   Bank   in   1981,   holding   the   title   of   regional   branch   coordinator   for   the   southern   region   when   he   left   for   the   National   Bank   of  Middlebury  in  1987. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I  had  done  well  (at  Vermont  Fed-­ eral)   and   I   liked   the   bank,   but   this   has  been  absolutely  the  best  move,â&#x20AC;?   Perine  said. And  a  good  move  for  the  bank,  ac-­ cording   to   growth   numbers   during   Perineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  tenure  there. When   he   arrived   at   the   bank   in   1987,   it   had   approximately   33   em-­ ployees   and   around   $50   million   in   assets.  The  bank  had  three  locations,   all  in  Middlebury  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  on  Main  Street,   Seymour   Street   and   in   The   Centre   shopping  plaza. Today,  the  National  Bank  of  Mid-­ dlebury   has   around   100   employees,

Vermont  Gas  a   fan  of  secrecy In  North  Carolina,  the  fracked   gas  industry  is  working  very  hard  to   enact  a  law  making  it  a  felony  for   anyone  to  reveal  what  chemicals   are  being  pumped  underground  in  a   fracked  well.  Here  in  Vermont,  our   local  gas  company  has  successfully   put  forward  rules  where  they  can   decide  what  information  they  share   and  what  gets  sealed  away  in  our   supposedly  open  and  inviting  Public   Service  Board  meetings.   It  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  matter  whether  you  are   Republican,  Democrat,  Libertar-­ ian,  Green  or  anything  else  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  this   should  bother  you.  This  stinks,  and   we  should  not  be  allowing  compa-­ nies  to  run  pipelines  through  pro-­ tected  watersheds  and  under  Lake   Champlain  who  behave  this  way.

$VWKHGHDGOLQHIRUÂżOLQJIRUSROLWLFDORIÂżFHLQ9HUPRQWQHDUVLWV-XQH cutoff,  the  Vermont  Republican  party  is  limping  on  the  sidelines.  A  guber-­ natorial  candidate  is  yet  to  be  named.  No  notable  party  leaders  have  stepped   WRWKHIRUHIRUGRZQSDUW\RIÂżFHVDQGZKLOHWKHUHLVWDONDERXWZRUNLQJWR take  legislative  seats,  there  has  been  little  action.  By  comparison,  the  Pro-­ JUHVVLYH3DUW\ÂśVÂżOLQJIRUVWDWHZLGHVHDWVDQGRIÂżFHVLVIDUPRUHLPSUHV-­ sive  and  makes  the  GOP  look  disorganized. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  bad  for  the  GOP  and  for  the  state.  Our  form  of  representative  De-­ mocracy  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  work  as  well  as  it  could  when  the  minority  perspective  has   such  a  weak  presence.  As  a  state,  weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re  stronger  with  articulate  debate  on   both  sides  of  an  issue. A  stronger  Republican  Party  in  Vermont  should  be  front  and  center  on   todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  stage  not  just  challenging  the  governor  and  the  Democratic  major-­ ity  in  the  Legislature  on  a  host  of  issues  but,  more  importantly,  proposing   compromise  solutions  and  tackling  neglected  issues.  For  example: Â&#x2021;+HDOWKFDUHUHIRUP  Vermont  is  in  the  midst  of  a  major  transforma-­ tion.  The  effort  is  not  to  stop  it  (the  minority  party  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  have  the  votes   for  that),  but  rather  to  help  ensure  that  what  gets  rolled  out  is  no  worse  for   the   stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   economy   than   what   other   states   will   see   through   Obamacare,   DQGWKDWLQDEHVWFDVHVFHQDULRDFWXDOO\EHQHÂżWVWKHVWDWHLQWKHORQJWHUP Harping  on  the  governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  missed  deadline  for  a  budget  is  a  whinerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  com-­ plaint  that  does  nothing  to  advance  the  issue.  Rather,  the  Republicans  could   take  the  lead  in  advocating  for  a  New  England-­based  insurance  pool  that   would  put  Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  residents  into  a  larger  demographic  where  multiple   insurance  companies  are  competing  for  the  market.  That  would  help  drive   rates  down,  if  it  could  be  put  into  place.  Bringing  more  competition  to  the   marketplace  is  a  Republican  platform;Íž  making  it  work  in  Vermont  is  the   challenge  the  state  party  has  to  resolve. Businesses  want  to  be  assured  that  whatever  happens  on  the  road  to  re-­ form  they  are  kept  abreast  of  the  potential  changes  soon  enough  to  adapt   smartly  and  wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  be  placed  in  jeopardy  by  political  whims.  On  both  is-­ sues,  a  stronger  Republican  voice  could  lead  those  discussions,  knowing   that  many  Democrats  and  Progressives  would  join  their  concerns. Â&#x2021; (GXFDWLRQ ÂżQDQFH UHIRUP   Rep.   Heidi   Scheuermann,   R-­Stowe,   has   ÂżOHGZKDWVKHFRQVLGHUVFRPSUHKHQVLYHUHIRUPOHJLVODWLRQIRUWKHSDVWVHY-­ eral  years,  but  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  gone  nowhere.  That  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  necessarily  mean  it  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   have  merit,  but  that  it  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  resonate  with  enough  legislators  to  even  get   it  out  of  committee.  What  Republicans  should  do  is  take  the  good  aspects   of  Scheuermannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  bill,  modify  it  and  take  that  on  the  road  for  public  input.   Modify  it  again,  take  it  back  on  the  road,  get  more  input  and  keep  doing   it  until  the  party  builds  consensus  around  the  idea.  Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  what  minority   partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  do:  they  work  at  building  consensus  on  new  ideas  to  solve  old  prob-­ lems;Íž  those  ideas  gain  traction  if  the  problem  is  not  being  solved  by  the   party  in  power,  and,  in  the  process,  the  minority  party  learns  what  other   pockets  of  the  state  actually  think  about  their  positions. What  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  work  is  to  propose  the  same  bill  year  after  year  and  call  it   WKHDQVZHUWRÂżQDQFHUHIRUPDVLIQRRWKHUVROXWLRQVFDQEHIRXQG Ironically,  one  of  the  failings  of  todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  hyper-­digital  environment  is  that   politicians  and  political  parties  too  often  post  comments  and  proposed  leg-­ islation  on  their  Facebook  pages,  web  sites  and  Twitter  feeds  until  they  are   blue  in  the  face  thinking  their  message  is  reaching  the  masses.  Not  so.  A   few  members  of  the  same  choir  might  read  it,  but  few  others  do.  The  hard   work  of  being  in  politics  is  to  engage  constituents  in  a  personal  dialogue,   to  listen  and  learn  from  others  and  to  craft  that  information  into  policy  that   represents  a  broad  spectrum  of  support.  That  does  not  happen  on  a  website,   a  Facebook  post  or  through  a  Twitter  feed  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  all  mediums  that  attract  like-­ minded  followers. Â&#x2021; 6FKRRO FRQVROLGDWLRQ  The   issue   is   controlling   the   cost   of   education   spending.  Consolidation  is  one  scenario  that  addresses  cost.  Others  avenues   abound.  There  are  as  many  opinions  as  there  are  current  school  districts.   Republicans   could   play   an   effective   role   by   getting   their   constituents   to   focus  on  better  ways  to  deliver  educational  outcomes  while  keeping  a  lid   on  rising  costs  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  an  issue  right  up  their  ideological  alley.  Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  another  tough   issue,  but  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  one  that  all  Vermonters  are  concerned  about  and  want  to  see   reasonable   solutions   proposed.   Hiding   behind   the   status   quo   for   fear   of   alienating  voters  is  not  a  winning  strategy  for  the  GOP.  Minority  parties   regain  power  by  being  bold  enough  to  come  up  with  the  answers  to  such   vexing  problems.

Teenagers  are  often  portrayed   as  problems,  yet  for  the  past  nine   weeks  teenagers  have  been  the  solu-­ tion  to  problems.  The  kitchen  at  the   Congo  Church  has  been  under  con-­ struction  for  the  last  nine  weeks  and   due  to  the  generosity  of  the  Middle-­ bury  Union  High  School  leader-­ ship,  staff,  athletic  teams  and  their   coaches,  we  (Friday  Night  Commu-­ nity  Suppers)  have  been  able  to  put   on  our  meals  in  the  MUHS  cafeteria   every  Friday  night.   It  has  been  inconvenient  for  the   kitchen  run  by  Laurie,  the  janitorial   staff  and  Athletic  Director  Sean  Far-­ rell,  who  made  it  all  happen,  yet  no   one  has  complained.  It  has  been  an   experience  in  community  building   for  our  many  guests  as  well  as  the   many  students  who  served  them.   Our  guests  have  commented  every   week  on  the  kindness  of  the  student   servers  and  the  courtesy  that  the   teenagers  have  shown  them.   Special  thanks  go  to  Sean  Farrell   and  the  principals,  Karen  Nawn-­ Fahey  who  has  stored  and  moved   supplies  weekly,  the  janitorial  staff   who  has  cleaned  up  after  us  every   week  and  the  kitchen  crew  who  has   tolerated  our  amateur  performances.   7KHNLWFKHQVWDIIGLGWKHÂżUVWPHDO to  show  us  how  it  was  done  there,   and  the  food  was  delicious.  The   Alternative  Education  students   and  staff  and  the  Teen  Center  also   cooked  and  served  excellent  meals.   The  boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  and  girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  lacrosse  teams,   the  baseball  varsity  and  JV  teams,   the  softball  teams,  the  track  team   and  the  tennis  teams  have  all  acted   as  servers  along  with  their  coaches.   These  people  made  this  experi-­ ence  for  the  guests  and  for  those   of  us  who  regularly  work  at  the   suppers  a  wonderful  experience.  It   indeed  takes  a  village  to  run  a  Com-­ munity  Supper  program.  Thank  you   to  all.

Marquis  Theater  to   expand  food  offerings

Boo  &  Roxy,  Cursive   Coffee  join  forces By  JOHN  FLOWERS MIDDLEBURY  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  some-­ thing   new   brewing   at   the   vacant   storefront  at  58  Main  St.  in  Middle-­ bury   that   formerly   housed   Clemen-­ tine. The  space  will  soon  become  home   to  an  espresso  bar  to  be  operated  by   Burlington-­based   Cursive   Coffee,   along   with   a   new   business   called   Boo  &  Roxy  that  will  be  headquar-­ ters   to   local   architect   and   designer   Anne  Barakat  and  her  husband,  Jon   Craine,   a   production   designer   and   art  director. Founders   Jim   Osborn   and   Sam   Clifton   describe   Cursive   Coffee   as   an  â&#x20AC;&#x153;itinerant  cafĂŠ  and  micro-­roasting   company.â&#x20AC;?   They   founded   the   busi-­ ness   during   the   summer   of   2013,   introducing   their   product   through   various   pop-­ups   and   private   events   before  building  a  devoted  following   as  a  staple  of  the  Burlington  Farm-­ ersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  Market.  They  have  also  become   D UHJXODU Âż[WXUH DW 3LQH 6WUHHWÂśV Barge  Canal  Market. Osborn  explained  that  Cursive  has   been  able  to  carve  out  a  niche  by  es-­ pousing  a  minimalist  philosophy  and   by  sourcing  its  coffee  beans  through   a  socially  responsible  supplier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   have   gained   recognition   by   having  an  extremely  simple  menu,â&#x20AC;?   Osborn   said   during   a   recent   tele-­ phone  interview. It   is   a   menu   that   never   exceeds   ÂżYH RSWLRQV ZLWK ÂłLQJUHGLHQWV GH-­ OLEHUDWHO\UHÂżQHGWRRQO\FRIIHHDQG milk,  and  dedication  to  purveying  a   rotating  selection  of  delicious,  trace-­ able  and  compelling  coffees,â&#x20AC;?  reads   &XUVLYHÂśV EXVLQHVV SURÂżOH RQ LWV website,  cursivecoffee.com. Cursive   sources   its   coffee   beans   through   The   Coffee   Shrub,   a   Cali-­ fornia   company   that   contracts   di-­ rectly   with   farmers   and   exporters   from   around   the   world,   rather   than   through   distributors,   according   to   Osborn.   This   means   that   the   grow-­ ers  get  a  larger  return  for  their  prod-­ ucts,  he  said.  The  Coffee  Shrub  is  a   micro-­seller  serving  companies  that   also  roast.  Cursive  roasts  weekly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   pay   a   lot   more   money   for   our  coffee  than  if  we  were  buying  it   through  a  distributor,â&#x20AC;?  Osborn  said. That  means  the  cost  to  consumers   will  be  somewhat  higher  that  at  oth-­ er  venues,  Osborn  acknowledged.  A   cup  of  Cursive  will  run  you  between   $2.50   to   $4,   and   most   customers   will   say   itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   worth   it,   according   to   Osborn. Barakat   had   sampled   Cursiveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   wares   and   liked   what   she   tasted.   When  she  announced  plans  to  have  a   collaborative  public  space  at  Boo  &

Perspectives  (Continued  from  Page  16A) up  with  the  idea  for  a  magazine.â&#x20AC;? Santos  joked  that  the  burgeoning   size  of  the  newsletter  made  the  for-­ mat  less  practical. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   not   a   newsletter   once   you   get  to  so  many  pages,â&#x20AC;?  he  said. Santos  said  he  sees  Perspectives   as  a  publication  that  showcases  the   work   of   the   farms   that   buy   from   Phoenix   Feeds.   The   company   has   about  150  clients  from  every  New   England  state,  and  stretching  west   into  New  York  as  far  as  Watertown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   want   to   feature   our   clients   and   the   farms   we   work   with,   and   talk  about  certain  product,â&#x20AC;?  Santos   said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  the  idea  behind  it.â&#x20AC;? Those   who   create   the   magazine   hope   that   others   interested   in   the   dairy   industry   will   get   something   out   of   it,   said   Justin   Bunnell   of   Retro  Motion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  want  to  give  farmers  some-­ thing   that   makes   them   feel   larger   than  life,â&#x20AC;?  Bunnell  said,  describing   it   as   a   â&#x20AC;&#x153;luxury   magazine   for   dairy   farmers.â&#x20AC;? The  print  run  for  the  magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   debut  issue  is  1,000  copies,  which   will  be  distributed  throughout  Ver-­ mont.   The   free   publication   is   also   available  online  in  the  .pdf  format.   Bunnell  said  he  expects  the  online   reach  to  be  3,000  to  4,000. Jon  Rooney  of  Monument  Farms   Dairy  in  Weybridge  graces  the  cov-­ er   of   the   28-­page   inaugural   issue,   which  features  stories  on  maximiz-­ ing  milk  production,  cow  digestive   tract  health,  bovine  heat  stress  and   dairy   nutrition,   among   other   top-­ ics. Santos   serves   as   the   magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   executive  editor,  while  Mark  Free-­ man  of  Retro  Motion  is  the  senior   HGLWRU7KHLVVXHIHDWXUHVÂżYHFRQ-­

tributing  writ-­ ers,   including   Freeman   and   two   veterinar-­ ians.   Santos   said   he   hopes   to   expand   the   editorial   side   of   the   magazine   in   the   future,   and   possi-­ bly   include   articles   by   P h o e n i x   Feed   cli-­ ents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   do   have   some   clients   that   are   excel-­ lent   writ-­ ers,   so   I   think   thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   a   s t r o n g   p o s s i b i l -­ ity,â&#x20AC;?   San-­ tos  said. Santos   said   the   target   audience   for   Perspectives   is   not   just   dairy   farmers  and  their  families,  but  New   Englanders  of  all  walks  of  life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dairy  farmers  work  really  hard,   and   we   want   non-­farming   people   who   read   this   to   understand   how   hard   they   work   to   produce   these   products,â&#x20AC;?  Santos  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully   weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll  have  content  that  will  appeal   to  everyone.â&#x20AC;? Santos   cautioned   that   the   maga-­ zine   isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   a   vehicle   to   promote   his   own  company,  but  rather  bring  the   New   England   farming   community   closer  together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  not  about  featuring  Phoenix   Feeds;Íž   itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   promoting   agriculture

A   special   committee   appointed   by   the  trustees  of  Eastern  States  Exposi-­ tion   selects   its   annual   fellow   on   the   basis   of   innovation,   pioneering   and   lifetime   dedication   to   the   betterment   of   agriculture.   Its   recipients   have   PDGH VLJQLÂżFDQW FRQWULEXWLRQV WR New  England  agriculture. 6LQFH WKH IHOORZVKLS ZDV ÂżUVW EH-­ stowed   in   1953,   only   a   handful   of   Vermont   farms   have   earned   it,   and   only  one  in  Addison  County  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  Rob-­ ert  Foster  of  Middlebury  in  2000. The  Audetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  Blue  Spruce  Farm,  lo-­ cated   off   Route   22A,   is   best   known   for  being  the  pioneering  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cow  Pow-­ erâ&#x20AC;?   farm   and   for   supplying   Cabot   Creamery   with   their   cowsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   milk   to   make  Cabot  cheddar  cheese.   The  operation  began  when  Norman   and  Mary-­Rose  Audet  purchased  the   35-­cow   Blue   Spruce   Farm   in   1958.   Over  the  next  seven  years,  they  wel-­ FRPHGÂżYHFKLOGUHQZKRTXLFNO\EH-­ came  the  farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  early  labor  force.  As   the   farm   grew,   a   state-­of-­the-­art   free   stall   barn   was   built   to   accommodate  

the  short  stature  of  the  workers,  as  the   children   were   not   yet   teenagers.   To-­ day,  the  farm  is  run  by  second  genera-­ tion  brothers,  Eugene,  Ernie  and  Earl,   along  with  other  family  members  and   25  employees. The  farm  ships  100,000  pounds  of   milk   every   day   to   the   nearby   Cabot   plant   and   each   year,   produces   3.6   million   gallons   of   milk.   The   Cabot   cheese  plants  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  there  is  one  in  Mid-­ dlebury  and  one  in  the  town  of  Cabot   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  are  owned  by  the  Audets  and  1,200   other   farm   families   who   own   Cabot   as  members  of  the  Agri-­Mark  Coop-­ erative.   The   Middlebury   and   Cabot   plants  employ  676  people,  while  pro-­ viding  a  valuable  market  for  Vermont   milk  and  global  distribution  of  award-­ winning   cheddar   cheese.   The   Audet   family  is  proud  of  its  heritage,  com-­ mitment  to  community,  and  being  an   integral  part  of  the  Cabot  Co-­op. The   Audets   plant   3,000   acres   to   grow   feed   to   provide   a   balanced,   nutritious   diet   for   their   cows.   They   have  made  enormous  investments  in   HTXLSPHQW ODERU VHHG DQG ODQG WR grow   the   grass   and   corn   which   pro-­ vide   the   bulk   of   the   cowsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   nutrition.   A   methane   digester   allows   the   farm   to  capitalize  on  its  huge  feed  invest-­ ments  by  collecting  the  leftovers  that   the  cows  donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  utilize  as  part  of  their   natural  digestion  (otherwise  known  as   manure)  and  turn  it  into  fertilizer  and   electricity.

All  manure   from   the   farm   is   col-­ lected   and   pumped   into   two   14-­foot   deep,  600,000  gallon  â&#x20AC;&#x153;bio-­digesters,â&#x20AC;?   leaving  room  for  the  naturally  occur-­ ring   methane   gases   to   collect   at   the   top.  That  methane  gas  is  used  to  pow-­ er  generators  that  push  enough  elec-­ tricity   into   the   utility   grid   to   power   about  400  homes.   After   21   days,   the   manure   is   pumped   out   of   the   digester   and   the   OLTXLG LV VHSDUDWHG IURP XQGLJHVWHG SODQWÂżEHUVWKDWDUHXVHGIRUFRPIRUW-­ DEOHĂ&#x20AC;XII\EHGGLQJIRUWKHFRZV7KH process  replaces  a  tractor-­trailer  load   of  sawdust  each  week,  contributing  to   the  farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  carbon  reduction.  In  addi-­ tion,  the  farm  only  uses  about  half  the   SODQW ÂżEHUV VHOOLQJ WKH UHVW WR RWKHU farms   for   bedding   and   to   gardeners   and   landscapers   as   a   nutrient   rich,   weed  seed-­free,  fertilizer.   7KH OLTXLG LV XVHG DV IHUWLOL]HU WR improve   soil   health,   reducing   the   need   for   commercial,   fossil   fuel-­ based   fertilizers.   Hating   to   throw   anything  away,  even  the  oil  from  the   generator  is  utilized  to  run  a  waste  oil   IXUQDFHWKDWKHDWVWKHIDUPHTXLSPHQW repair  shop. This   entire   process,   affectionately   called  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cow  Power,â&#x20AC;?  allows  the  farm   to   be   a   better   neighbor   by   reducing   farm   odor,   reducing   its   carbon   foot-­ print,   removing   methane   emissions   from  the  air  and  generating  electricity   for  fellow  Vermonters.
