The couple met in Washington, D.C., while both were students at Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies.

Peter Carreiro of Charlotte, and his Rise ‘n Shine milk delivery business, located at the intersection of Church Hill Road and Route 7, were featured as the cover story in the September 4 Burlington Free Press. Peter and his wife and children moved to Charlotte in 1997 from Rhode Island, where they had also been milk deliverers. They vacationed frequently in Vermont and decided to come here permanently. While still using milk as his main delivery item, he has added other food-and-drink options, including meat, pizzas, fresh eggs and Clif Bars. He delivers around the area and even into New Hampshire, making around 60 stops per day. He soon plans to open a farm stand on his Church Hill property that will include Charlotte-made honey. Does it sound as though Peter is “bringing back the milkman?”
