Good news according to the Providence Journal, the 137-year-old Munroe Dairy in East Providence that had been tentatively sold, will stay under the same ownership and expand operations making new products like ice cream and butter. That means its local farms will continue to have a small processor to buy their milk. If the company does get sold, the current owners hope it will be to an employee-owned entity.
If you have never tried the Munroe Dairy milk products, they are a wonderful surprise. The company delivers to a large area near their home base. With the huge product line they carry to your doorstep, it’s like a grocery store at your fingertips, order online and wake up to the goods in your milk box
