About Us: I grew up on a
small dairy farm in New Bethlehem, PA, and graduated from high school in
1966. By this time the old Surge Milkers were being fazed out and the
"pipe-line" system with the bulk tanks for storing milk were taking
over. The local farms had Guernsey or Holsteins herds of 25-35 cows. It wasn't affordable for these small farmers to switch to the bulk tank
system so many farmers were being forced out of business, having to
sell their long-time family farms. A few were able to hang on for a few
more years, selling "separated milk" to the local creamery
which still shipped in cans. Eventually the
only working dairy farms in the area averaged 250 cows and they milked
almost around the clock. Thus came the large inventory of milkers,
parts & equipment and the glass milk bottles all for sale. Many of these items were
tossed in land fills or old coal mines and buried. I know of some
original dairies in Pennsylvania that now wish they had saved a few of
their own bottles...
