A 99-year-old Vermont dairy is shutting down at the end of September because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Owners of Thomas Dairy, in Rutland, announced in a Facebook post that it will close at the end of the month because the pandemic hit them hard and the future remains uncertain.
They said they had less business from the traffic colleges, restaurants and tourism would bring in.
Fifth generation co-owner Abby Thomas says including increased competition from organic and nut milks, and the facilities are in need of expensive upgrades also played a role.
The owners tried selling the dairy, but they were unsuccessful.
