Oregon Dairy Farm

Oregon Dairy History/Timeline

Our History

In 1952, Mr. and Mrs. Earl D. Hurst purchased a farm located along 272 in Manheim Township. Mom and Pop Hurst had a dream of serving their neighbors and friends by selling fresh products from their farm.

A number of years later, after the Hurst family of ten children were raised, Mom and Pop’s dream became a reality. In 1974, they built and operated a small dairy store from which they sold fresh milk, eggs and produce. A few years later the Hurst Family decided to build a new store which was completed in 1979.

Since then, Oregon Dairy has undergone many changes. In 1986 a cafeteria was added to the store. With the continuing desire to serve their customers more efficiently, the Hurst Family saw the need to expand again. Consequently, in 1988 they enlarged the retail sales area of the store. After that, in the spring of 1993, the cafeteria was changed into a family restaurant.

Oregon Dairy is now home to: The Market at Oregon Dairy – a full service supermarket featuring local grown produce, an award-winning bakery, full-service seafood department, an amazing meat department featuring fresh cut to order beef, poultry and pork, deli and meal center.  The Restaurant at Oregon Dairy featuring authentic PA Dutch Foods and serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.  The Milkhouse Ice Cream Shoppe serving over 25 flavors of delicious hand-dipped ice cream, signature sundaes, milkshakes, and floats on our beautiful deck overlooking our farm.
