Name of creator
The Grand Manan Farmer's Co-Operative Limited was located at Grand Harbour (at 1332 Route 776), Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick. It operated between 1950 and 1972. The land for the Co-Op was purchased from Hayward and Helen Ingalls. Some of those involved in the Co-Op were Bob Harvey, Emerson Young, Charles Moses, Blake Ingersoll, Oscar Small, Hazen Dakin, Edward Thomas, and John Harris.
Because the Island farmers could not produce enough milk, they had to purchase their milk from Baxter's in Saint John, New Brunswick. This made the Co-Op unprofitable.
There is no information about the record creator. These records were stored by the Grand Manan Museum before the Grand Manan Archives was created in 1986.
