BRIDPORT — “There are so many closed loop systems. It’s all about that on our farms,” said Bridport dairy farmer Marie Audet, emphasizing the ways that sustainability is also a part of commonsense farm practice.
“We grow crops to feed the cows, and they make milk. Their milk makes Cabot cheese. And in the cheese-making process there’s some leftover stuff — whey — that instead of going into the municipal waste system in Middlebury gets brought back here,” she said, referring to her family’s Blue Spruce Farm.
