Friendship Dairies originated over 95 years ago in the small town of Friendship, located in upstate NY, where its founder first crafted an old world-style cheese called farmer cheese. This all natural cheese was produced all week long then transported by railway to be sold on the streets of New York City.
Today, Friendship is a leading producer of all natural cultured and pasteurized dairy products, processing more than a million pounds of grade A milk a day at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility still located in Friendship, NY. The milk is delivered fresh and used within hours of its arrival to make a wide variety of all natural dairy products, including cottage cheese, sour cream, farmer cheese, buttermilk and select yogurt products.
The same care and attention to quality that have been the cornerstone of the Friendship Brand since its inception are still adhered to this day.
