Butter Pat Machine Wanted
I am looking to buy a semi-automatic machine, that can perform wrapping/packaging butter with aluminum foil paper. The weight of one unit is
100 grams. The unit's dimensions are:
Length - about 10 cm
Width - about 5 cm
Height - about 1.3 cm.
According to our business plans, in the first year we plan to produce about 500 pieces per workday, and within three years, producing about
3,000 to 4,000 pieces of butter per workday. Because we are a small dairy (relatively), and we are at the beginning of our way in the
production of butter, I think perhaps we need a very small and simple machine with a low production rate. (Perhaps we need a machine that
only some of the activities it conducts are automatic). If you have a machine that meets those requirements, I'd love to hear from you about it.
Wanted Dairy Equipment
I am looking for Grade A dairy equipment including a bulk tank, pasteurizer, bottler, sink, and a commercial fridge. (Cheyenne, WY) 1-14

Idaho Creamery for Sale
Turn-key, artisan creamery in the picturesque Northern Rockies for lease or sale. Creamery has been producing a variety of fresh and aged,
cow’s milk cheeses and ice cream for the local and regional (Pacific Northwest) market for nearly four years. In addition to servicing 20+
wholesale (including 2 distributors) accounts including a variety of 5-star hotels, guest ranches, and premium grocers, the creamery operates a
retail storefront in the summer and during the peak winter/ski season and holidays, and participates in several local farmers markets.
Facilities include fully-renovated production facility and a state-of-the-art aging room. The creamery also has substantial walk-in refrigeration and
a large, walk-in deep freezer. We currently have 2 vat pasteurizers (170 gallon and 50 gallon) and a 6-piston press, all manufactured in Holland.
This is a terrific opportunity to acquire a creamery with existing high-quality products, a steady and loyal customer base, and a recognized brand.
There is ample potential to expand product distribution throughout the Rockies, Pacific Northwest and Northern California as well as within the
existing “hyper local” market. Lessee or buyer would have access to all formulations and other intellectual property, subject to negotiation. 3-14
