We’re Proud to be a Partner in the New 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 help launch the first state-wide program with Feeding Pennsylvania to Fill a Glass with Hope.
Help us reach our goal of delivering fresh milk to our neighbors in need.
Did you know that 1 in 5 kids in Pennsylvania are hungry? Together, we can Fill a Glas with Hope so no one goes without fresh milk. Each $1 donated equals 6 servings of 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 1954, the Association joined together with Valley Grange #1360 from Lewisberry, Pa. to serve hand-dipped milkshakes at the annual Pa. Farm Show.
More than 65 years later, the Association is still serving their now famous milkshakes each year to Farm Show’s visitors. The Association also provides fried cheese cubes, ice cream and grilled cheese sandwiches during the Pa. Farm Show.
Proceeds from the sale of milkshakes benefit agricultural scholarships, youth programs and 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.
This past year, Pennsylvania dairy farmers stepped up in a big way to feed our neighbors in need through milk drives and donations. They are proud to produce wholesome, nutritious and delicious milk for you. This June and every month, you can fuel your family and support our farmers by choosing Pennsylvania dairy. Look for the PA Preferred logo or plant code 42 at your local grocery store! #ChoosePADairy
