Changes at Smiling Hill Farm Spark Dissension

Some-–if not all-–of the cows at Smiling Hill Farm in Westbrook were transported
to new homes this week. The departure of the cows has apparently created
dissension among members of the Knight family that owns the farm, and unsettled
some customers and others with connections to Smiling Hill. Warren Knight,
president of the farm’s board of directors, said last week that cows at the farm
would be leaving while the farm temporarily stopped milking on site. The farm
plans to milk cows there again after it transitions to a less labor-intensive
type of milking system, Knight said.
