Jasper Hill Four engineering students have designed and built a prototype ammonia filter to improve the air quality for cheese at the Jasper Hill Farm, in Greensboro, VT. The filter created by Adam Wood, Paul Veselka, Evan Johanson and Dave McCloskey from the University of Vermont’s College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences was installed in the cheese cave at Jasper Hill Farm and is featured on the NSF web magazine "Science360" and on the UVM home page. The video entitled, "Cheese Whizzes: Undergrads Engineer Cleaner Air for Vermont Cheese Cave", was produced by Jeffrey Wakefield, Assistant Director of University Communications.
