Looking for dairy resources like on-the-farm videos, books or coloring sheets? Our family resources section has everything you need in one place.

We’re Proud to be a Partner in the Statewide Campaign “Choose PA Dairy: Goodness That Matters”. Making the choice to buy local milk is important for your health, your family’s health, your local community and the commonwealth.

Pennsylvania-produced milk and dairy products can be found in grocery stores, markets and local restaurants.

We’ve helped launch the first statewide charitable fresh milk distribution program in the U.S. with Feeding Pennsylvania and American Dairy Association North East. Fill a Glass with Hope® has provided more than 34 million servings of milk to families in need.


Did you know that approximately 1 in 6 kids in PA face hunger? Together, we can Fill a Glass with Hope® so no one goes without fresh milk.

PA Dairymen’s Association was originally formed as the Crawford County Dairy Association in 1871.


Within 17 years, the county group had become a statewide organization with a focus on supporting Pennsylvania dairy farms.

In 1953, the Association joined with Valley Grange #1360 from Lewisberry, Pa. to serve hand-dipped milkshakes at the annual Pa. Farm Show.


More than 70 years later, the Association is still serving their famous milkshakes each year to Farm Show’s visitors and across the state. At the PA Farm Show, the Association also provides their popular fried cheese cubes, ice cream, milk and grilled cheese sandwiches.


Proceeds from the sale of the milkshakes benefit agricultural scholarships, youth programs, hunger prevention, the PA Dairy Princess program, Calving Corner and many other educational programs across the state.


The PA Dairymen’s Association is governed by a dairy farmer Board of Directors and is lead by executive director Dave Smith.
