My time with Deans is coming to an end. Over the past 15years I have watched this company fall apart at a rapid pace. Management that has absolutely no clue how to run a dairy. Watching customers leave day in and day out. Being forced to do more work... read more

Us and them
A decade or so ago the idea of Huntley plant closing would have been laughed at. That's no longer the case, unfortunately. The plant will close by the end of September, and all 131 employees will be laid off as a result of that. Of course, instead of... read more
