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 our whole, 1% and chocolate milk and Rutter’s Green Tea, Orange 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.
