08 June 2010

US - The Sullivan County Partnership for Economic Development has secured a $50,000 loan to help a local farm establish an organic micro-dairy.

Bethel Livestock Farms will produce organic milk and distribute it to natural food retailers in the lower Hudson Valley and metro New York.

The company plans to add several employees, an administrator and equipment to its facility as it develops demand for its products.

The farm features environmentally friendly practices, all-natural veal and poultry, and has introduced kosher and organic milk products.

The partnership has been working with small agriculture-based businesses to help preserve farms in Sullivan County.
