Milk Pickup
By Troy Bishopp
Oriskany Falls, NY—Pause for a moment today and remember the first time you encountered your soulmate.  Was it at a church function, the grocery store, a party, or some other random meeting place?  One of the more unique places has to be how Fred and Joyce Williams connected over fresh, frothy cans of milk at the ole, iconic Hinman Farm Products Plant in Deansboro, N.Y.  To say milk brought love may be the next great marketing campaign.

The Colgate Ice Doctor is in
By Troy Bishopp
Hamilton, N.Y. – At the crack of dawn, on a frosty February morn, many farmers tend to livestock in the comfort of a barn. For Madison County native and farm boy, Bruce Weaver, the pre-dawn routine means heading to Colgate University’s Starr Rink and tending to a crack of a different sort.
