Garelick Farms is ending production at its Bangor milk-processing plant and laying off 35 employees. Garelick Farms’ parent company, Texas-based Dean Foods, said that production will be phased out during the next two months and that the facility will close permanently in January. Dean is keeping open Garelick’s distribution plant in Bangor, which has 38 employees. Spokesman Jamaison Schuler told the Bangor Daily News that the company is moving production to Garelick’s three other plants, in Massachusetts and New York. The Bangor facility has been in operation since 1902.
