World's Largest Dairy and 400 Million Dollar Institution Honored by State of Connecticut Tomorrow
For the first time in a century, there will be live cows at the Connecticut State Capitol Building as Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont joins officials in a milk toast honoring iconic Stew Leonard’s on their 50th Anniversary. They will also be celebrating Mr. Leonard’s 90th birthday.
Beginning as a small dairy in 1969, the Leonard family began as milkmen supplying milk in rural Connecticut. 50 years later, the $400-million/year enterprise services over 11 million customers across the nation and has become an institution. They have served millions of local residents from Connecticut farms in the past five decades.
