CHARLOTTE, VT, NOVEMBER 7, 2016 – MILK MONEY L3C, an equity crowdfunding portal for Vermonters, announces its fourth Invest Local campaign from GREEN MOUNTAIN ORGANIC CREAMERY (GMOC) home of Kimball Brook Farm organic milk.

Milk Money offers the opportunity for true “impact investing” since a dollar invested in a local business generates potential financial return as well as tangible social return on investment. By investing in a local business such as Green Mountain Organic Creamery, wealth will be circulated and help build a stronger community that will foster new relationships between businesses and community members. The Milk Money platform serves as a meeting place for Vermonters to discover local investment opportunities such as Green Mountain Organic Creamery.
Kimball Brook Farm is a certified organic dairy operation based in North Ferrisburgh, Vermont bottling and packaging Whole Milk, Skim Milk, 1% & 2% Milk, Heavy Cream, Half & Half, Chocolate Milk, Maple Milk, Iced Cappuccino Mocha & Coffee flavors, Buttermilk, Butter (Salted & Unsalted), and a line of Iced Teas (Black Tea with Lemon Sweet & Unsweet, Green Tea with Mint Sweet & Unsweet). The first shipment of organic milk from Kimball Brook Farm was in September 2005 and as time went by, owners JD and Cheryl DeVos had a vision to open their own creamery. They put a plan in motion to make this dream a reality and as they approached the finish line, they received the VT Dairy Farm of the Year award in June 2011. Finally, the official opening of Green Mountain Organic Creamery located in Hinesburg (former Saputo Cheese Plant) was on May 17, 2012. GMOC is proud to offer a single sourced product from crops to feed, to milking their cows to producing the organic products Vermonters have come to love. The Creamery’s business of providing delicious organic dairy products and iced teas is expanding further into the Northeastern United States and East Coast.
