College to Start up Dairy Plant by Next Spring

August 1, 2014 04:35 AM
 

A new dairy processing plant at Vermont Technical College is expected to be up and running by next spring.

College officials hope revenue from the plant will help balance out the cost of operating the farm in Randolph.

Vermont Public Radio reports the farm currently operates at an annual deficit of $150,000. Under an agreement with Sodexo, the company that provides food service to the state college system, Vermont Technical College can pasteurize and package the milk delivered to all of the state colleges, which would help cut that deficit.

It's hoped the plant can produce yogurt, too.
