Got fresh, raw milk? Ju-Vindale Holsteins does, and is now licensed to sell it

The Cazenovia Beverage Trail has a new, although unofficial, location at which patrons can stop and get a homemade drink — but this drink is non-alcoholic. It is, in fact, milk. Fresh, raw milk is an up-and-coming commodity in terms of local production and local consumption in this age of “buy local,” and Ju-Vindale Holsteins, located at 2074 Ballina Road, recently became the second dairy in Cazenovia and one of the few in Madison County to become licensed by the state to sell directly to the public the fresh, raw milk its cows produce.

Goodbye, Friendly’s

When Angie Costello heard Friendly’s in Fayetteville was closing for good, she couldn’t believe it. “Friendly’s is the center of everything in Fayetteville,” Costello said. “At least that’s the way I felt when I lived there. If you had to meet someone, you met them at Friendly’s or if you wanted ice cream late at night, that’s where you went. Fayetteville needs something like that. I can’t imagine the village without it.
