Lochmead Ice Cream Where To Buy
Passionate. Dedicated. Sustainable. That's Lochmead. Lochmead Farms and Lochmead Dairy, owned and operated by our family, work together to provide fresh, wholesome dairy products. Lochmead Farms grows a variety of crops that not only supply feed for our herd, but also provide some of the delicious ingredients found in our ice cream. Our cows are born and raised on the farm, where under the watchful eye of our herdsman, they grow to be strong and healthy, producing great-tasting milk and cream. Four miles down the road, our Lochmead Dairy processing plant bottles the farm's milk and turns the cream into a delicious dessert. With other ingredients from the farm, such as peppermint oil, and hazelnuts, we are able to produce a full-flavored, premium ice cream. Lochmead Dairy has its own distribution route to our Dari Mart stores and to other wholesale and resale markets.

Founded by Howard and Gladys Gibson as the 120-acre Lochmead Farms just west of Junction City in 1941, the business quickly shifted to a dairy operation and grew substantially in the following decades. It opened its first Dari Mart convenience stores in the 1960s and began producing Lochmead ice cream in the 1980s.
The new dairy ice cream line comes in seven flavors: banana caramel flambé, chocolate, hazelnut fudge crunch, peanut butter, strawberry lemon shortbread, cookie dough and vanilla bean. The products are packaged in 14-oz pints and have a suggested retail price of $8.99.
What originally began as Lochmead Farms, when Howard Gibson purchased 120 acres near Junction City in 1941, today is known as Lochmead Dairy.
