We've Got the Scoop

You may or may not have noticed that the NY Times just featured an article in this past Wednesday’s food section about the SVF Foundation in Newport. It’s unique because it’s the only place in the country that’s working to conserve rare heritage breeds like the Tennessee fainting goat and Hog Island sheep by freezing their embryos and semen, a process called cryopreservation. Also interesting, the entire undertaking was started by Dorrance Hill Hamilton, an heiress of the Campbell’s Soup fortune and a Newport summer resident.

But we (and our loyal readers) already knew all that because our own Pippa Jack wrote about the SVF Foundation in our March 2007 issue. Check it out here. And remember: You heard it here first.
