In 1933 Byrne Dairy began selling high quality milk in glass bottles and delivering it to Central New York homes in horse-drawn wagons. It was the commitment to exceptional quality and the strong desire to produce the finest products every day to its customers that set Byrne Dairy apart.
Today, Byrne Dairy is a fourth generation, family-owned producer and distributor of Greek Yoghurt, Conventional Yogurt, Sour Cream, Milk, Cream, Ice Cream and a variety of other dairy products. Based in Central New York, with its abundant supply of high quality milk, Byrne Dairy works with local family farms. Byrne Dairy’s average farm is only 35 miles from it’s plants where they receive around 50 million pounds of milk each month. Strong relationships with their farmers has been a cornerstone of Byrne Dairy’s business lasting through generations and bonded by handshakes not contracts.
Byrne Dairy currently has four manufacturing facilities including a Fresh Dairy Plant and Ice Cream Plant located in Syracuse, N.Y, an Ultra High Temperature (UHT) Pasteurization Plant in DeWitt, N.Y., and a Cultured Plant located in Cortlandville, N.Y.
Byrne Dairy has additional plans for their new Cultured Plant and overall 133 acre site in Cortlandville, N.Y. Future plans include an artisanal cheese making operation, tourist facility to allow the public to view the manufacturing process, and an outdoor amphitheater for concerts and other gatherings.
