Inflation is driving up the prices of essential items like bread and milk in Massachusetts and across the country.

At the same time, local dairy farmers are feeling the costs of supply chain shortages associated with the pandemic and the war in Ukraine.

We speak to Mark Duffy, who operates Great Brook Farm in Carlisle, and sits on the board of Agri-Mark Family Dairy Farms, the co-op best known for making Cabot cheese.

This segment aired on March 15, 2022.
