Pittsford Farms Dairy: Old-Fashioned Flavor

PittsfordFarms Dairy4 Pittsford Farms Dairy products have been enjoyed for more than a century. Founded in 1880, the 200-acre working farm became an established dairy farm, and by 1888, began producing milk in glass bottles — something the farm still does today.

Pittsford Farms Dairy continues to be a owned and run by the Corby family. They produce milk, amazing chocolate milk, fresh butter, killer egg nog, and many creative flavors of ice cream — like Red Raspberry or Rugged Rower ice cream.

PittsfordFarms Dairy2They pasteurize the milk at a lower temperature. It’s a little less processed, it takes a little longer, but it has better body and is a little sweeter, and has a longer shelf life. Most large dairy farms pasteurize milk at 172 degrees Fahrenheit, while Pittsford Farms Dairy pasteurizes it at 145 degrees. This traditional method heats milk gently. The flavor makes the extra effort worthwhile.

The family opened a new building in 2013 which includes a retail store, ice cream parlor and bakery complete with with milk-bottle chandeliers, and vintage-jug seating at a common table. In the rear of the building there is a state of the art processing plant with viewing window which allows the visitors to see the milk being bottled in glass bottles and ice cream being made by hand in small batches, the old fashioned way.
