This is a historic day for our family and 20 other dairy farmers in the Shenandoah Valley as we realized a huge step in our dream to market our own dairy products. Banding together, we purchased the former Unilever ice cream plant in Hagerstown, MD, a two-hour drive from the valley. Today, we assumed full ownership, visited the plant to begin readying it, and held a press conference. The city officials of Hagerstown are very welcoming, and we look forward to working together with this supportive community.
Under the label Shenandoah Family Farms, we hope to market our own natural, locally produced milk and ice cream in late fall and expand product lines as our company grows. My husband Dennis (Company President) has worked tirelessly toward this goal, as have many other farmers and business advisers who’ve given generously of their time. So, if you live within a 250 mile radius of Hagerstown, MD (as the crow flies, so a larger area than you might think) look for natural, sustainable, locally produced dairy products coming soon, from us to you. ***Please ‘like us’ on Facebook!
