Community comes together for running club Device allows Briggs to join classmates By Â WEYLAND Â JOYNER MIDDLEBURY Â â€” Â Every Â Tuesday Â and Â Thursday Â afternoon Â this Â spring, Â Dan Â Briggs Â had Â track Â practice. Â For Â the Â 18-Âyear-Âold Â from Â Addison Â this Â was Â a Â new Â experience. Â %ULJJVZDVERUQZLWKVSLQDELÂżGD a Â congenital Â spinal Â disorder Â that Â re-Â quires Â him Â to Â wear Â leg Â braces Â and Â keeps Â him Â from Â running Â or Â walking Â long Â distances. But Â when Â he Â decided Â he Â wanted Â to Â join Â his Â schoolâ€™s Â running Â club, Â pro-Â gram Â instructors, Â community Â mem-Â bers Â and Â his Â teammates Â came Â togeth-Â er Â in Â an Â extraordinary Â way Â to Â make Â his Â dream Â a Â reality. Briggs Â is Â a Â student Â at Â the Â Diversi-Â ÂżHG 2FFXSDWLRQV 3URJUDP DQ DOWHU-Â native Â high Â school Â special Â education Â program Â in Â Middlebury.

Â Unfortunately, Â commercial Â push Â chairs Â of Â this Â type Â carry Â a Â price Â tag Â of Â $800-Â$1,200, Â more Â than Â the Â pro-Â gram Â could Â afford. Â So Â Sally Â Thodal, Â a Â teaching Â assistant Â at Â the Â program, Â reached Â out Â to Â her Â husband, Â Dick, Â an Â accomplished Â welder. Â With Â materials Â donated Â by Â Champlain Â Valley Â Con-Â struction, Â Skihaus Â and Â The Â Bike Â Cen-Â ter Â of Â Middlebury, Â Dick Â Thodal Â fabri-Â cated Â a Â custom Â jogger Â for Â Briggs. Â Briggsâ€™ Â teammates Â take Â turns Â push-Â ing Â him Â in Â the Â jogger Â on Â the Â 3.1-Âmile Â circuit Â they Â run Â twice Â a Â week Â from Â WKH '2 SURJUDPÂśV FODVVURRPV QH[W to Â Middlebury Â Union Â High Â School.

Perine set to retire as Middlebury bank CEO By Â JOHN Â FLOWERS MIDDLEBURY Â â€” Â When Â G. Â Ken-Â neth Â Perine Â joined Â the Â National Â Bank Â of Â Middlebury Â in Â 1987 Â as Â a Â vice Â president Â and Â residential Â mortgage Â lender, Â he Â thought Â he Â had Â found Â his Â perfect Â career Â perch. â€œIt Â was Â all Â I Â expected,â€? Â Perine Â said Â during Â a Â recent Â interview. Â â€œI Â just Â wanted Â to Â work Â for Â the Â hometown Â bank.â€? Eventually Â the Â Middlebury Â native Â found Â that Â he Â would Â not Â only Â work Â for Â it, Â he Â would Â lead Â it. Perine Â was Â named Â president Â of Â the Â 183-Âyear-Âold Â bank Â in Â January Â of Â 1992 Â and Â ushered Â in Â a Â period Â of Â tre-Â mendous Â growth Â for Â the Â institution. Now Â itâ€™s Â time Â for Â another Â transi-Â tion. Perine Â will Â phase Â out Â his Â duties Â as Â chief Â executive Â by Â the Â end Â of Â this Â year, Â and Â will Â then Â begin Â working Â on Â special Â projects Â at Â the Â bank Â on Â a Â part-Â time Â basis Â during Â the Â next Â two Â years. Â Executive Â Vice Â President Â Caroline Â Carpenter Â will Â succeed Â him Â as Â only Â the Â 11th Â president Â in Â the Â bankâ€™s Â long Â history. While Â the Â National Â Bank Â of Â Mid-Â dlebury Â only Â formally Â announced Â the Â leadership Â transition Â this Â week, Â it Â has Â been Â in Â the Â works Â for Â the Â better Â part Â of Â 10 Â years Â as Â part Â of Â the Â institutionâ€™s Â long Â range Â planning, Â according Â to Â Perine, Â who Â will Â turn Â 63 Â in Â October. â€œYou Â get Â to Â a Â point Â in Â your Â career Â where Â you Â say, Â â€˜Itâ€™s Â time,â€™â€? Â Perine Â said. Â â€œAnd Â itâ€™s Â time Â for Â me.â€? Perine Â believes Â â€œitâ€™s Â timeâ€? Â for Â a Â number Â of Â reasons, Â including Â the Â de-Â sire Â to Â spend Â more Â time Â with Â family Â and Â to Â work Â on Â various Â household Â projects. Â But Â he Â also Â believes Â itâ€™s Â time Â because Â he Â knows Â Carpenter Â is Â ready Â to Â become Â the Â top Â admin-Â istrator Â of Â the Â bank. Â She Â has Â been Â part Â of Â the Â Addison Â County Â banking Â community Â since Â 1991, Â serving Â as Â a Â mortgage Â originator Â at Â Vermont Â Fed-Â eral Â Bank Â for Â six Â years Â prior Â to Â join-Â ing Â National Â Bank Â of Â Middlebury Â in Â 1997. Â She Â is Â well Â versed Â in Â the Â tech-Â nology Â side Â of Â the Â banking Â business, Â which Â is Â becoming Â increasingly Â im-Â portant Â in Â the Â institutionâ€™s Â daily Â op-Â eration. â€œThe Â board Â is Â very Â appreciative Â of Â Kenâ€™s Â leadership Â of Â our Â bank,â€? Â said Â Sarah Â Stahl, Â chairwoman Â of Â the Â bankâ€™s Â board Â of Â directors. Â â€œHis Â outstanding Â service Â continues Â a Â tra-Â dition Â of Â long-Âserving Â leaders.

A Â graduate Â of Â Middlebury Â Union Â High Â School Â (class Â of Â 1969) Â and Â Dartmouth Â College Â (class Â of Â 1973), Â Perine Â began Â his Â professional Â bank-Â ing Â career Â in Â 1978, Â as Â assistant Â to Â the Â manager Â of Â the Â Middlebury Â Savings Â and Â Loan Â Association. Â He Â joined Â Vermont Â Federal Â Bank Â in Â 1981, Â holding Â the Â title Â of Â regional Â branch Â coordinator Â for Â the Â southern Â region Â when Â he Â left Â for Â the Â National Â Bank Â of Â Middlebury Â in Â 1987. â€œI Â had Â done Â well Â (at Â Vermont Â Fed-Â eral) Â and Â I Â liked Â the Â bank, Â but Â this Â has Â been Â absolutely Â the Â best Â move,â€? Â Perine Â said. And Â a Â good Â move Â for Â the Â bank, Â ac-Â cording Â to Â growth Â numbers Â during Â Perineâ€™s Â tenure Â there. When Â he Â arrived Â at Â the Â bank Â in Â 1987, Â it Â had Â approximately Â 33 Â em-Â ployees Â and Â around Â $50 Â million Â in Â assets. Â The Â bank Â had Â three Â locations, Â all Â in Â Middlebury Â â€” Â on Â Main Â Street, Â Seymour Â Street Â and Â in Â The Â Centre Â shopping Â plaza. Today, Â the Â National Â Bank Â of Â Mid-Â dlebury Â has Â around Â 100 Â employees, Â

Vermont Â Gas Â a Â fan Â of Â secrecy In Â North Â Carolina, Â the Â fracked Â gas Â industry Â is Â working Â very Â hard Â to Â enact Â a Â law Â making Â it Â a Â felony Â for Â anyone Â to Â reveal Â what Â chemicals Â are Â being Â pumped Â underground Â in Â a Â fracked Â well. Â Here Â in Â Vermont, Â our Â local Â gas Â company Â has Â successfully Â put Â forward Â rules Â where Â they Â can Â decide Â what Â information Â they Â share Â and Â what Â gets Â sealed Â away Â in Â our Â supposedly Â open Â and Â inviting Â Public Â Service Â Board Â meetings. Â It Â doesnâ€™t Â matter Â whether Â you Â are Â Republican, Â Democrat, Â Libertar-Â ian, Â Green Â or Â anything Â else Â â€” Â this Â should Â bother Â you.

$VWKHGHDGOLQHIRUÂżOLQJIRUSROLWLFDORIÂżFHLQ9HUPRQWQHDUVLWV-XQH cutoff, Â the Â Vermont Â Republican Â party Â is Â limping Â on Â the Â sidelines. Â A Â guber-Â natorial Â candidate Â is Â yet Â to Â be Â named. Â No Â notable Â party Â leaders Â have Â stepped Â WRWKHIRUHIRUGRZQSDUW\RIÂżFHVDQGZKLOHWKHUHLVWDONDERXWZRUNLQJWR take Â legislative Â seats, Â there Â has Â been Â little Â action. Â By Â comparison, Â the Â Pro-Â JUHVVLYH3DUW\ÂśVÂżOLQJIRUVWDWHZLGHVHDWVDQGRIÂżFHVLVIDUPRUHLPSUHV-Â sive Â and Â makes Â the Â GOP Â look Â disorganized. Thatâ€™s Â bad Â for Â the Â GOP Â and Â for Â the Â state. Â Our Â form Â of Â representative Â De-Â mocracy Â doesnâ€™t Â work Â as Â well Â as Â it Â could Â when Â the Â minority Â perspective Â has Â such Â a Â weak Â presence. Â As Â a Â state, Â weâ€™re Â stronger Â with Â articulate Â debate Â on Â both Â sides Â of Â an Â issue. A Â stronger Â Republican Â Party Â in Â Vermont Â should Â be Â front Â and Â center Â on Â todayâ€™s Â stage Â not Â just Â challenging Â the Â governor Â and Â the Â Democratic Â major-Â ity Â in Â the Â Legislature Â on Â a Â host Â of Â issues Â but, Â more Â importantly, Â proposing Â compromise Â solutions Â and Â tackling Â neglected Â issues. Â For Â example: Â‡+HDOWKFDUHUHIRUP Â Vermont Â is Â in Â the Â midst Â of Â a Â major Â transforma-Â tion. Â The Â effort Â is Â not Â to Â stop Â it Â (the Â minority Â party Â doesnâ€™t Â have Â the Â votes Â for Â that), Â but Â rather Â to Â help Â ensure Â that Â what Â gets Â rolled Â out Â is Â no Â worse Â for Â the Â stateâ€™s Â economy Â than Â what Â other Â states Â will Â see Â through Â Obamacare, Â DQGWKDWLQDEHVWFDVHVFHQDULRDFWXDOO\EHQHÂżWVWKHVWDWHLQWKHORQJWHUP Harping Â on Â the Â governorâ€™s Â missed Â deadline Â for Â a Â budget Â is Â a Â whinerâ€™s Â com-Â plaint Â that Â does Â nothing Â to Â advance Â the Â issue. Â Rather, Â the Â Republicans Â could Â take Â the Â lead Â in Â advocating Â for Â a Â New Â England-Âbased Â insurance Â pool Â that Â would Â put Â Vermontâ€™s Â residents Â into Â a Â larger Â demographic Â where Â multiple Â insurance Â companies Â are Â competing Â for Â the Â market. Â That Â would Â help Â drive Â rates Â down, Â if Â it Â could Â be Â put Â into Â place. Â Bringing Â more Â competition Â to Â the Â marketplace Â is Â a Â Republican Â platform;Íž Â making Â it Â work Â in Â Vermont Â is Â the Â challenge Â the Â state Â party Â has Â to Â resolve. Businesses Â want Â to Â be Â assured Â that Â whatever Â happens Â on Â the Â road Â to Â re-Â form Â they Â are Â kept Â abreast Â of Â the Â potential Â changes Â soon Â enough Â to Â adapt Â smartly Â and Â wonâ€™t Â be Â placed Â in Â jeopardy Â by Â political Â whims. Â On Â both Â is-Â sues, Â a Â stronger Â Republican Â voice Â could Â lead Â those Â discussions, Â knowing Â that Â many Â Democrats Â and Â Progressives Â would Â join Â their Â concerns. Â‡ (GXFDWLRQ ÂżQDQFH UHIRUP Â Rep. Â Heidi Â Scheuermann, Â R-ÂStowe, Â has Â ÂżOHGZKDWVKHFRQVLGHUVFRPSUHKHQVLYHUHIRUPOHJLVODWLRQIRUWKHSDVWVHY-Â eral Â years, Â but Â itâ€™s Â gone Â nowhere. Â That Â doesnâ€™t Â necessarily Â mean Â it Â doesnâ€™t Â have Â merit, Â but Â that Â it Â doesnâ€™t Â resonate Â with Â enough Â legislators Â to Â even Â get Â it Â out Â of Â committee. Â What Â Republicans Â should Â do Â is Â take Â the Â good Â aspects Â of Â Scheuermannâ€™s Â bill, Â modify Â it Â and Â take Â that Â on Â the Â road Â for Â public Â input. Â Modify Â it Â again, Â take Â it Â back Â on Â the Â road, Â get Â more Â input Â and Â keep Â doing Â it Â until Â the Â party Â builds Â consensus Â around Â the Â idea. Â Thatâ€™s Â what Â minority Â partyâ€™s Â do: Â they Â work Â at Â building Â consensus Â on Â new Â ideas Â to Â solve Â old Â prob-Â lems;Íž Â those Â ideas Â gain Â traction Â if Â the Â problem Â is Â not Â being Â solved Â by Â the Â party Â in Â power, Â and, Â in Â the Â process, Â the Â minority Â party Â learns Â what Â other Â pockets Â of Â the Â state Â actually Â think Â about Â their Â positions.

Â â€œAnd Â I Â think Â that Â if Â I Â can Â keep Â sending Â more Â I Â can Â change Â more Â peopleâ€™s Â lives.â€? Â After Â Bingham Â Memorial, Â Salis-Â bury Â and Â Mary Â Hogan, Â Schneider Â biked Â to Â Weybridge Â for Â another Â pre-Â VHQWDWLRQDQGOXQFKEHIRUHÂżQLVKLQJ the Â ride Â where Â he Â started. Â Finally, Â at Â the Â end Â of Â the Â day, Â he Â biked Â home. Â
MAKING Â A Â DIFFERENCE Schneiderâ€™s Â efforts Â have Â gained Â attention Â within Â the Â World Â Bicycle Â Relief Â community, Â and Â his Â personal Â fundraising Â page Â on Â the Â organiza-Â tionâ€™s Â website Â earned Â him Â praise Â from Â visitors Â as Â the Â donations Â rolled Â in.

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

persevered, Â knowing Â that Â the Â health Â center Â model Â was Â what Â the Â commu-Â nity Â needed.

Perspectives Â (Continued Â from Â Page Â 16A) up Â with Â the Â idea Â for Â a Â magazine.â€? Santos Â joked Â that Â the Â burgeoning Â size Â of Â the Â newsletter Â made Â the Â for-Â mat Â less Â practical. â€œItâ€™s Â not Â a Â newsletter Â once Â you Â get Â to Â so Â many Â pages,â€? Â he Â said. Santos Â said Â he Â sees Â Perspectives Â as Â a Â publication Â that Â showcases Â the Â work Â of Â the Â farms Â that Â buy Â from Â Phoenix Â Feeds. Â The Â company Â has Â about Â 150 Â clients Â from Â every Â New Â England Â state, Â and Â stretching Â west Â into Â New Â York Â as Â far Â as Â Watertown. â€œWe Â want Â to Â feature Â our Â clients Â and Â the Â farms Â we Â work Â with, Â and Â talk Â about Â certain Â product,â€? Â Santos Â said. Â â€œThatâ€™s Â the Â idea Â behind Â it.â€? Those Â who Â create Â the Â magazine Â hope Â that Â others Â interested Â in Â the Â dairy Â industry Â will Â get Â something Â out Â of Â it, Â said Â Justin Â Bunnell Â of Â Retro Â Motion. â€œWe Â want Â to Â give Â farmers Â some-Â thing Â that Â makes Â them Â feel Â larger Â than Â life,â€? Â Bunnell Â said, Â describing Â it Â as Â a Â â€œluxury Â magazine Â for Â dairy Â farmers.â€? The Â print Â run Â for Â the Â magazineâ€™s Â debut Â issue Â is Â 1,000 Â copies, Â which Â will Â be Â distributed Â throughout Â Ver-Â mont. Â The Â free Â publication Â is Â also Â available Â online Â in Â the Â .pdf Â format. Â Bunnell Â said Â he Â expects Â the Â online Â reach Â to Â be Â 3,000 Â to Â 4,000. Jon Â Rooney Â of Â Monument Â Farms Â Dairy Â in Â Weybridge Â graces Â the Â cov-Â er Â of Â the Â 28-Âpage Â inaugural Â issue, Â which Â features Â stories Â on Â maximiz-Â ing Â milk Â production, Â cow Â digestive Â tract Â health, Â bovine Â heat Â stress Â and Â dairy Â nutrition, Â among Â other Â top-Â ics. Santos Â serves Â as Â the Â magazineâ€™s Â executive Â editor, Â while Â Mark Â Free-Â man Â of Â Retro Â Motion Â is Â the Â senior Â HGLWRU7KHLVVXHIHDWXUHVÂżYHFRQ-Â
tributing Â writ-Â ers, Â including Â Freeman Â and Â two Â veterinar-Â ians. Â Santos Â said Â he Â hopes Â to Â expand Â the Â editorial Â side Â of Â the Â magazine Â in Â the Â future, Â and Â possi-Â bly Â include Â articles Â by Â P h o e n i x Â Feed Â cli-Â ents. â€œWe Â do Â have Â some Â clients Â that Â are Â excel-Â lent Â writ-Â ers, Â so Â I Â think Â thatâ€™s Â a Â s t r o n g Â p o s s i b i l -Â ity,â€? Â San-Â tos Â said. Santos Â said Â the Â target Â audience Â for Â Perspectives Â is Â not Â just Â dairy Â farmers Â and Â their Â families, Â but Â New Â Englanders Â of Â all Â walks Â of Â life. â€œDairy Â farmers Â work Â really Â hard, Â and Â we Â want Â non-Âfarming Â people Â who Â read Â this Â to Â understand Â how Â hard Â they Â work Â to Â produce Â these Â products,â€? Â Santos Â said. Â â€œHopefully Â weâ€™ll Â have Â content Â that Â will Â appeal Â to Â everyone.â€? Santos Â cautioned Â that Â the Â maga-Â zine Â isnâ€™t Â a Â vehicle Â to Â promote Â his Â own Â company, Â but Â rather Â bring Â the Â New Â England Â farming Â community Â closer Â together. â€œItâ€™s Â not Â about Â featuring Â Phoenix Â Feeds;Íž Â itâ€™s Â promoting Â agriculture Â
and Â the Â farms, Â our Â customers,â€? Â Santos Â said. Santos Â said Â Retro Â Motion Â and Â Phoenix Â Feeds Â have Â enjoyed Â a Â fruitful Â relationship Â over Â the Â years. Âł7KH\ÂśUH GHÂżQLWHO\ WRSQRWFK LQ the Â industry Â and Â on Â the Â forefront Â of Â social Â media Â and Â digital Â program-Â ming,â€? Â Santos Â said. In Â place Â of Â ambitious Â goals Â for Â expansion, Â Santos Â said Â heâ€™s Â taking Â a Â wait-Âand-Âsee Â approach. Â The Â next Â issue Â is Â due Â out Â in Â August. â€œWeâ€™re Â just Â trying Â to Â do Â some-Â thing Â thatâ€™s Â a Â little Â fun,â€? Â Santos Â said.

Â â€” Â The Â New Â England Â Fellowship Â of Â Ag-Â ricultural Â Adventurers Â presented Â the Â Audet Â family Â of Â Bridport, Â Vermontâ€™s Â Blue Â Spruce Â Farm Â with Â the Â 2014 Â Ag-Â ricultural Â Adventurers Â Award. Â The Â award Â was Â bestowed Â at Â the Â Annual Â Meeting Â of Â Eastern Â States Â Exposi-Â WLRQODVWPRQWKLQ:HVW6SULQJÂżHOG Mass. A Â special Â committee Â appointed Â by Â the Â trustees Â of Â Eastern Â States Â Exposi-Â tion Â selects Â its Â annual Â fellow Â on Â the Â basis Â of Â innovation, Â pioneering Â and Â lifetime Â dedication Â to Â the Â betterment Â of Â agriculture. Â Its Â recipients Â have Â PDGH VLJQLÂżFDQW FRQWULEXWLRQV WR New Â England Â agriculture. 6LQFH WKH IHOORZVKLS ZDV ÂżUVW EH-Â stowed Â in Â 1953, Â only Â a Â handful Â of Â Vermont Â farms Â have Â earned Â it, Â and Â only Â one Â in Â Addison Â County Â â€” Â Rob-Â ert Â Foster Â of Â Middlebury Â in Â 2000. The Â Audetsâ€™ Â Blue Â Spruce Â Farm, Â lo-Â cated Â off Â Route Â 22A, Â is Â best Â known Â for Â being Â the Â pioneering Â â€œCow Â Pow-Â erâ€? Â farm Â and Â for Â supplying Â Cabot Â Creamery Â with Â their Â cowsâ€™ Â milk Â to Â make Â Cabot Â cheddar Â cheese. Â The Â operation Â began Â when Â Norman Â and Â Mary-ÂRose Â Audet Â purchased Â the Â 35-Âcow Â Blue Â Spruce Â Farm Â in Â 1958. Â Over Â the Â next Â seven Â years, Â they Â wel-Â FRPHGÂżYHFKLOGUHQZKRTXLFNO\EH-Â came Â the Â farmâ€™s Â early Â labor Â force. Â As Â the Â farm Â grew, Â a Â state-Âof-Âthe-Âart Â free Â stall Â barn Â was Â built Â to Â accommodate Â
the Â short Â stature Â of Â the Â workers, Â as Â the Â children Â were Â not Â yet Â teenagers. Â To-Â day, Â the Â farm Â is Â run Â by Â second Â genera-Â tion Â brothers, Â Eugene, Â Ernie Â and Â Earl, Â along Â with Â other Â family Â members Â and Â 25 Â employees. The Â farm Â ships Â 100,000 Â pounds Â of Â milk Â every Â day Â to Â the Â nearby Â Cabot Â plant Â and Â each Â year, Â produces Â 3.6 Â million Â gallons Â of Â milk. Â The Â Cabot Â cheese Â plants Â â€” Â there Â is Â one Â in Â Mid-Â dlebury Â and Â one Â in Â the Â town Â of Â Cabot Â â€” Â are Â owned Â by Â the Â Audets Â and Â 1,200 Â other Â farm Â families Â who Â own Â Cabot Â as Â members Â of Â the Â Agri-ÂMark Â Coop-Â erative. Â The Â Middlebury Â and Â Cabot Â plants Â employ Â 676 Â people, Â while Â pro-Â viding Â a Â valuable Â market Â for Â Vermont Â milk Â and Â global Â distribution Â of Â award-Â winning Â cheddar Â cheese. Â The Â Audet Â family Â is Â proud Â of Â its Â heritage, Â com-Â mitment Â to Â community, Â and Â being Â an Â integral Â part Â of Â the Â Cabot Â Co-Âop. The Â Audets Â plant Â 3,000 Â acres Â to Â grow Â feed Â to Â provide Â a Â balanced, Â nutritious Â diet Â for Â their Â cows. Â They Â have Â made Â enormous Â investments Â in Â HTXLSPHQW ODERU VHHG DQG ODQG WR grow Â the Â grass Â and Â corn Â which Â pro-Â vide Â the Â bulk Â of Â the Â cowsâ€™ Â nutrition. Â A Â methane Â digester Â allows Â the Â farm Â to Â capitalize Â on Â its Â huge Â feed Â invest-Â ments Â by Â collecting Â the Â leftovers Â that Â the Â cows Â donâ€™t Â utilize Â as Â part Â of Â their Â natural Â digestion Â (otherwise Â known Â as Â manure) Â and Â turn Â it Â into Â fertilizer Â and Â electricity.
All Â manure Â from Â the Â farm Â is Â col-Â lected Â and Â pumped Â into Â two Â 14-Âfoot Â deep, Â 600,000 Â gallon Â â€œbio-Âdigesters,â€? Â leaving Â room Â for Â the Â naturally Â occur-Â ring Â methane Â gases Â to Â collect Â at Â the Â top. Â That Â methane Â gas Â is Â used Â to Â pow-Â er Â generators Â that Â push Â enough Â elec-Â tricity Â into Â the Â utility Â grid Â to Â power Â about Â 400 Â homes. Â After Â 21 Â days, Â the Â manure Â is Â pumped Â out Â of Â the Â digester Â and Â the Â OLTXLG LV VHSDUDWHG IURP XQGLJHVWHG SODQWÂżEHUVWKDWDUHXVHGIRUFRPIRUW-Â DEOHĂ€XII\EHGGLQJIRUWKHFRZV7KH process Â replaces Â a Â tractor-Âtrailer Â load Â of Â sawdust Â each Â week, Â contributing Â to Â the Â farmâ€™s Â carbon Â reduction. Â In Â addi-Â tion, Â the Â farm Â only Â uses Â about Â half Â the Â SODQW ÂżEHUV VHOOLQJ WKH UHVW WR RWKHU farms Â for Â bedding Â and Â to Â gardeners Â and Â landscapers Â as Â a Â nutrient Â rich, Â weed Â seed-Âfree, Â fertilizer. Â 7KH OLTXLG LV XVHG DV IHUWLOL]HU WR improve Â soil Â health, Â reducing Â the Â need Â for Â commercial, Â fossil Â fuel-Â based Â fertilizers. Â Hating Â to Â throw Â anything Â away, Â even Â the Â oil Â from Â the Â generator Â is Â utilized Â to Â run Â a Â waste Â oil Â IXUQDFHWKDWKHDWVWKHIDUPHTXLSPHQW repair Â shop. This Â entire Â process, Â affectionately Â called Â â€œCow Â Power,â€? Â allows Â the Â farm Â to Â be Â a Â better Â neighbor Â by Â reducing Â farm Â odor, Â reducing Â its Â carbon Â foot-Â print, Â removing Â methane Â emissions Â from Â the Â air Â and Â generating Â electricity Â for Â fellow Â Vermonters.
