From the original Oakhurst Dairy, founded by the Bennett family on Woodford Street in Portland in 1921, to the modern 100% farmer-owned dairy on Forest Avenue in Portland, Oakhurst has always stood for The Natural Goodness of Maine. It’s about more than milk. It’s about standing up for what you believe, and doing what’s right.
The Natural Goodness of Maine is their heartfelt pledge to not only offer the freshest products day in and day out, but to conduct business transparently, in ways that honor their customers, the environment and their responsibility to next generation. All of their milk comes from local Maine farmers who took the first farmers pledge to keep artificial growth hormone out of milk. Today, they extend this commitment by reducing their environmental impact, keeping their footprints as small as possible, and finding ways to support healthy active kids.
