Over the years there have been many farms and businesses that bottled fluid milk for consumers in Windham County and beyond. Neil Pelsue, a former UVM milk marketing economist, will use some of the milk bottles from his collection to tell where and how some of these bottlers served their customers. He will explain a bit of the history of milk marketing in the region, noting some of the substantial changes that have taken place from the early 1900s to today. He will also bring along some of his favorite bottles used in Vermont and other places.
