Where can I find "Haddam Barn Red" paint?

Hi,
The current issue of Vermont Life has an article on efforts to preserve historic barns. It mentions a brand/color of paint: "Haddam Barn Red."
I've googled all the possible variations and the only "Haddam" reference is to a town in Connecticut. Has anyone heard of this brand? Any suggestion where I might look?
Thanks! SZ

It would seem that contacting the "Vermont Life" people on Monday (802-828-3241) would answer your question pretty quickly or at least give you some more solid information to go on.

A good idea. So good, in fact, that we've already tried. We got some information on the author, an adjunct professor are Dartmouth, but can't seem to get a hold of him. I was hoping someone had heard of the paint brand.
Best, Sergej

How have you tried to contact him? http://www.dartmouth.edu/dnd/ might give you some useful information for tracking him down. It seems strange to me that the magazine doesn't have information on a product that they are basically plugging -- they certainly aren't shy about pushing readers to every other vendor that they've mentioned...
Thinking back, I seem to remember that all the "original equipment" paint on really old barns would have been a milk paint concoction mixed locally. Ingredients are something like skim milk, hydrated lime, chalk, and mineral pigment but I don't know the proportions. I use a pre-formulated (just add water) milk paint for my old-style furniture because it is easier for me but it would be a very expensive way to obtain authenticity for something the size of a building.

Haddam would be the color , deal with a quality paint , like Ben Moore, or Sherwin Williams. They can make any color you want and have products that will last, not like some off brand crap.
