Excellence Since 1934
When J. Lindsay Nunn started the dairy with a mere seventy cows in 1934, he could not have envisioned that, Plains Dairy would be selling hundreds of thousands of gallons of milk a day to customers more than 550 miles away. Yet, as the city’s sole operating dairy, this friendly operation remains an Amarillo icon that generates a warm, down-home feeling from a company that continues to supply the freshest, best-tasting dairy products around.
Affiliated Foods purchased the dairy in 1996 and adopted the name Plains Dairy. Affiliated Foods’ service area spans West Texas, New Mexico, and parts of Oklahoma, Colorado, Kansas and Arizona. Now Plains Dairy’s state-of-the-art dairy processing facility provides customers with a guaranteed fresh, quality product, day in and day out. The dairy produces 500,000 gallons of milk a week. In addition to the “Plains” dairy product line, Plains Dairy also produces brewed “Red Diamond” tea, “Tampico” punch, “Culligan” water, and Fruit Drinks.
