Dairy has long been a farm industry in Amherst and the cows of choice have been Jersey, Guernsey or Holstein. These bottles collected by John Bowe of Florence, Mass. supply with us basic information about the farm, the milk, the packaging and the market.
With the gift of his milk bottle collection, Mr. Bowe also provided us with basic information on each dairy. Please let us know if you have stories to add.
