Freund Dairy, located in East Canaan, Connecticut, is operated by Matthew Freund. The farm owns a total of 600 acres of land, with a milking cow population of 250. Heifers are raised off the farm, and the milking herd is grazed during the summer months. An anaerobic plug-flow digester was installed and operated since 1997, which is one of two on-farm digester applications currently existing in the state of Connecticut.
