Maine organic milk company to stay open
A Maine farmer-owned organic milk company is going to keep producing milk after all.
David Bright, of Maine’s Own Organic Milk, or MOOMilk, says a number of individuals and foundations have provided enough money to enable the company to sell its product to two Maine food banks.The Machias-based MOOMilk had said it would suspend production on Sunday because it was out of money.
Bright said the company didn’t have enough cash on hand to keep producing, but it does now. MooMilk was formed last year after Hood didn’t renew its contract for organic milk with 10 Maine farms. It buys milk from six Maine farms. Its organic milk is distributed to 49 stores in Maine and New Hampshire.
