Dairy Industry Success

Within the last 5 years alone, over 515,000 square feet has been opened by three major dairy producers and processors that supply food to people throughout the world – Alpina Foods, LLC and Yancey’s Fancy. This is why we remain New York’s leading producer of dairy products.

Here are just some of the reasons the dairy industry does so well here:

  • Skilled labor at affordable rates – our cost of living is well below other dairy towns including Lancaster, PA, Milwaukee, WI and Sacramento, CA
  • Ongoing educational support – hundreds of students graduate at our local universities with degrees in agriculture, food and national resources
  • Convenient and affordable market access – our US-Canadian border access, the Great Lakes waterfront, established highway access as well as both air and rail access makes distribution simple
