Remember the milk cans left at the entrance to farm’s along the country roads?

This galvanized steel milk can is stamped:  AULT CREAMERY LTD., WINCHESTER, 80   JW  b

Ault operated in Winchester from 1932 until 1968 when it was purchased by Labatt Breweries who in turn sold the business to Parmalet who closed it in 2004.

This is just an example of one of many artifacts in the collection of the Cornwall Community Museum from SD & G’s milk and cheese producing past.
