The Kawartha Dairy Company is a 100% Canadian, 100% family owned company, headquartered in Bobcaygeon. In 1937, Jack and Ila Crowe took a leap of faith and bought a small dairy in Bobcaygeon. At that time it consisted of a small, simple three room building, where the cold storage area was cooled with ice cut from the lake. Local farms provided the fresh milk, picked up by wagons in the summer and sleigh in the winter, with milk delivered to homes by horse or to cottages by boat. In 1942, they bought another Bobcaygeon Dairy and, in the early 1960s, expanded to Minden. Today, Kawartha Dairy operates 8 retail stores and services a wide range of wholesale customers, from retail outlets to foodservice establishments and, of course, ice cream parlours. The dairy receives deliveries of fresh milk daily, much of which is from the local area and all of which is from Ontario farms.
