History

Oak Farms

For close to 100 years, Oak Farms® Dairy has been processing and distributing fresh milk and dairy products to millions of customers throughout the Lone Star State. Because we strive to achieve the highest standard of quality in everything we do, Oak Farms Dairy has become a Texas favorite.

To continue that legacy, we're proud to feature All Natural Milk with specially marked labels with "Our Farmers' Pledge." This is our promise to you that our milk has no artificial growth hormones, and is naturally fresh.

To assure this level of quality, we manage the process from the farm to your fridge. That means that what you read on the label is what you get in the bottle - great taste and nutrition, without artificial growth hormones.

Oak Farms Dairy cares about giving you and your family only the best. That's why loyal customers always say we're "Like Part of the Family."

Hygeia

Hygeia Dairy was named for the Greek Goddess of Health and has provided healthy, high quality dairy products for over 85 years.  The company was founded by Harvey Richards in 1927 when he purchased a small creamery in Harlingen Texas.  Over the years Hygeia expanded across South Texas moving from the Rio Grande Valley into Corpus Christi in the late 1960's and then into Laredo in the early 1970's.

In the late 1980's Hygeia Dairy began bottling milk products in their distinctive yellow bottles.  The yellow bottles block harmful light rays to protect the quality and freshness of milk.

Hygeia Dairy joined Dean Foods in December 1999 and continues to offer a full line of dairy products to retail stores and the food service industry.
