ABOUT US

A Family Tradition

OUR STORY

Back in 1907, when Las Vegas was just a sleepy little railroad town, a dairy farmer named Harry Anderson started a dairy farm on a sparsely vegetated piece of land, way out in the countryside, across from what is now University Medical Center on West Charleston Boulevard.
With a little luck and a lot of hard work, Harry succeeded in raising a small herd of 10-15 milking cows.
Since this relatively new western town was without the modern convenience of refrigeration, Harry Anderson delivered his milk by horse-drawn wagon twice a day to ensure that his customers always had fresh milk. Wet burlap was draped over the bottles in the back of the wagon to keep them cool. A Las Vegas tradition was born!

1. Milk

Our different selections of milk ranges from whole milk to fat free milk, chocolate milk, 1% milk and 2% milk.

2. Ice Cream

Whether you love plain vanilla or are a fan of flavors such as rocky road or pistachio, we have something for you.

3. Other Dairy Products

Butter milk, egg nog, cottage cheese, and butter are just some of the other delicious dairy products we create.

4. Non Dairy Products

Our apple drink, citrus punch, mango peach juice, and variety of quenchers are great refreshing beverages.

OUR TIMELINE

Throughout time, Anderson Dairy has progressed into one of the top leading dairy brands. But how did we get here? Take a look below to learn about how we started and where we are today. A lot has changed over the years, but one thing hasn't: our commitment to quality. We will continue to give you our very best. We believe that is how Harvey would have wanted it to be.
