On Monday, Craigs Creamery/Noblehurst Farms in Pavilion hosted a milk giveaway. Every car the showed up got at least a gallon of milk for free, with a total of 2,000 gallons available. The distribution was in conjunction with Natural Upcycling, Dairy Farmers of America, and the Livingston County Farm Bureau and took place on World Milk Day.

The milk was processed by Pittsford Farms Dairy. When Billie and I lived in Pittsford, that was the only place we ever bought milk. It's the best. Below is a video about the dairy I produced in 2008 as a project for a video production class I was in at the time.

Pavilion — Craigs Creamery, a dairy cooperative and essential food manufacturer composed of eight family-run farms in Western New York, is helping to feed those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The co-op has donated cases of its locally made, award-winning cheeses to area school districts and other organizations in need due to the public healthcare crisis.

“We live, farm, and raise our families in Upstate NY; our co-op members are dedicated to supporting our friends and neighbors,” said Jennifer Noble, Noblehurst Farms, Craigs Creamery co-op member. “We are happy to help and will continue to find ways to creatively give back, especially during this heightened time of need.”

Craigs Creamery has donated cases of its cheddar cheese snack bars to the Pavilion and York Central School Districts to be included in packaged lunches, which continue to be delivered to students.

In addition to product donations, the co-op is lending its refrigerated trailer to the Pavilion Central School District to refrigerate school lunches in support of its no-contact delivery program.

Craigs Creamery has also made significant donations to the Avon Food Pantry. Over the Easter weekend, in conjunction with Partyman Catering, they created cheese and cracker snack packs and donated them to local hospital workers.

Craigs Creamery, based in Pavilion, is a joint venture of eight family-run farms and Dairy Farmers of America, a leading farmer-owned milk marketing cooperative and dairy foods processor. For more information, visit:   craigscreamery.com

Press release:

SYRACUSE -- The 51st Annual Butter Sculpture at the New York State Fair was taken down, but it didn't go to waste.

American Dairy Association North East, in conjunction with Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners and Noblehurst Farms, dismantled the 800-pound sculpture today at the New York State Fairgrounds.

Ultimately, the inedible butter will make its way to Noblehurst Farms in Pavilion (and Linwood), a "Dairy of Distinction," where it will be recycled in the farm’s methane digester and converted into renewable energy to power the dairy farm and produce liquid fertilizer for crops.

Noblehurst Farms has been recognized for achievements in sustainability and community partnerships to divert food waste from local landfills. (For previous coverage of an example of these efforts, click here.)

This year’s sculpture, “Milk. Love What’s Real,” featured a grandfather and child dunking cookies into milk and a young couple sharing a milkshake, illustrating how our love for real dairy connects many cherished moments in our lives.

Here's a link to a time-lapse video of the sculpture's deconstruction, which actually took 90 minutes to do.
