email headerWe have transformed the design of our bottles of milk, iced tea and orange juice to provide consumers with a modern package that pays homage to our old-fashioned glass milk bottles. The new bottle’s clear plastic material allows consumers to easily see the liquid product before making the purchase. We  continually set the industry’s pace in modern packaging; in 1992, Rutter’s became the first local dairy to transition from the industry standard of paper cartons to plastic bottles. These new bottle’s are made of a highly  recyclable, environmentally friendly bottle.

Same Farm Fresh Quality. Fresh, New Design.

Local.

The roots of Rutter’s Dairy are planted deeply in the soil of Central Pennsylvania, in farmland deeded to the Rutter family in 1747 by descendants of Pennsylvania’s founder, William Penn. Rutter’s family farm has been in operation for 266 years, making it one of the oldest continually-operated family farms in America.

 

Fresh.

Count on Rutter’s for the farm fresh milk that you’ve grown to love! Rutter’s dairy products come from over 30 local area dairy farmers. All Rutter’s milk comes from cows that are not treated with artificial growth hormones (rBST). On-site bottling in York, Pa assures maximum quality and freshness –Our new fresh-pasteurized cream product has a sell-by date 17 days from its production, the same as Rutter’s milk products. Fresh pasteurization allows the product to be bottled in its purest form, just milk and cream, without the use of stabilizers or preservatives. AND all the bottles we make (over a million!) are recyclable.

 

Healthy.

We have recently made several healthy changes to our milk, cream and iced tea beverages to further improve the quality.  We have eliminated high-fructose corn syrup from both of our chocolate milk products, as well as our green tea, half & half and lemonade.

 

Delicious.

Refresh yourself with Rutter’s! We make a delicious assortment of juices, spring water and a distinctive line of Rutter’s thirst quenching original and flavored iced teas. Choose from family sized gallon bottles to individual bottles for on-the-go.
