In 2022, the Northeast Dairy Business Innovation Center (NE-DBIC) worked with farmers, processors, and technical service providers across 11 states, funding over 100 projects and investing over $6.5 million in regional dairy.
With a mission to increase innovation and resiliency for regional dairy production, we’re grateful for the many people across the Northeast who work to bring milk, cheese, yogurt, butter, ice cream, caramels, and all manner of dairy from farm to table.
From cow to goat to sheep dairies, from specialized equipment to marketing & branding support to agritourism grants, the NE-DBIC projects helped dairy farms and processors invest in their businesses, make critical upgrades, respond to a challenging economy, and deepen the relationships between dairies and communities.
