In October 2012, it announced a plan to open a yogurt plant and agritourism center on a 127-acre site in Cortlandville, New York.[5] The announcement marks Byrne Dairy's entry into the expanding central New York Greek yogurt belt, alongside Chobani, Crowley Foods, as well as Fage's presence in Johnstown.[6]

To celebrate St. Patrick's Day, the company markets a green, mint-flavored milk from the end of February until March 17th.[7][importance?]
