July is National Ice Cream Month and this year, Kreider Farms is also celebrating our 50th anniversary of producing and packaging consumer products under the Kreider Farms label.
Looking Back on 50 Years
50 years ago, in 1972, Kreider Farms opened our milk processing plant and retail store in Manheim, PA. This is still where we process and bottle all our dairy and drink products, however it’s undergone quite a few changes since it’s opening.
“Store One,” as we used to call the Kreider retail store in the front half of the plant, served as a local mini-mart style store offering lunch items to-go, candy, and of course our Kreider Farms farm-fresh milk, eggs, ice cream and drinks. The plant and store were both initially opened to offer Manheim locals a spot to pick up local, fresh favorites.
Although we no longer have that retail space today, our plant is still fully-functioning, and our products are available at independent and mainstream retailers throughout the Central PA region. Anytime you purchase Kreider Farms milk, ice cream or drinks, they still come right from our Manheim plant.
Take a walk through time with us in this gallery, reminiscing on the last 50 years.
