Why Chef Dion Chooses to Use The Farmer’s Cow Products
“We love using Farmer’s Cow products at The Madison Beach Hotel. On one hand because of the quality of all the products offered but also because we strongly support our local farmers. The company is committed to providing fresh, local products to Connecticut free of artificial growth hormones or unneeded pesticides and chemicals. From the milk to eggs to lemonade and apple cider the quality is always first-class.” – Brendan Dion
