BELMONT — Montchevré is temporarily increasing the prices it pays for goat milk due to this summer’s drought.
Montchevré sent letters to goat producers last week announcing the details of the pricing adjustment.
According to the Wisconsin State Journal in Madison, Montchevré increased the price it pays producers from $35 per 100 pounds of goat milk to more than $36 per hundredweight.
“We trust this pricing adjustment will provide some sensitive relief,” said company president Arnaud Solandt and vice president Jean Rossard in a news release. “We also hope it will either influence other goat cheese manufacturers to do the same or incite goat milk producers to come to Montchevré.”
