Organic Milk Co-operative has unveiled its own monument in homage to the autumnal equinox. Fridgehenge was revealed at 5.53am on Tuesday 22 September at Encie Farm, Somerset (England), just off the A303 near the Stonehenge site in Wiltshire. According to the Co-operative: "Fridgehenge is a monument to organic farming and is intended to symbolise the natural goodness of milk that's been produced on farms that don't use artificial chemicals and pesticides."
Fridgehenge is made up of over 30 recycled fridges, each with cow print design. Gill Crane, Communications Manager at OMSCo, said: "We are very proud of 'Fridgehenge' and hope it helps to inspire more people to drink organic milk and reap the benefits of consuming milk produced on farms with soils rich in natural nutrients. After the equinox we'll move to darker days when the dairy farmers will be working just as our ancient ancestors did to produce milk to feed our families."
Unlike Stonehenge, Fridgehenge will be taken down in a week's time.
