GREENE — Town & Country Foods is closing its doors after more than 40 years in business.

An employee answering the phone at the company confirmed the closure Friday. Messages left for the owners Friday and Monday were not returned.

The family-owned business on Daggett Hill Road provided meats and produce to local residents, restaurants, schools and summer camps.

Town & Country Foods ran an ad in the Sun Journal on Sunday announcing: “We are closing our retail store. Stock up and save while supplies last.”

No reason for the closing was offered in the ad and it was not clear how much longer it would be in operation.

Best-known for its meats, Town & Country Foods was also noted as a Greene landmark thanks to its mascot, Charlie, a life-sized fiberglass cow that sat in front of the store for nearly three decades. The cow was stolen in 2014 and was later recovered.

The Town & Country Foods logo and contact information are seen on the side of one of the company’s trucks in this 2014 photo.
