UDF Classic Ice Cream

On May 8th, 1940, in a converted garage, the first United Dairy Farmers store opened. With original formulas created by our grandfather, Carl Lindner Sr., the first batch of United Dairy Farmers ice cream was sold out of a 20' x 50' store front. The production area, adjacent to the store front, was where UDF Ice Cream was frozen in a 10 gallon brine batch freezer (via a salt and ice mixture). Hand filled in 5 gallon stainless steel cans, the semi-frozen ice cream was poured onto an aluminum frame holding 20-quart pail cartons, where the tops were then squeegeed to evenly fill each carton.

In those days, packaged ice cream was sold in pints and quarts ($.25 for a quart, $.13 for a pint). Our store's bulk ice cream sold three dips for a nickel, and for people without home freezers, you could bring along your own bowl to the store which we'd fill up until you said "when". Always an innovator, UDF was one of the first dairies in the state to introduce the half-gallon package in the late forties.

Three generations later, we still make our ice cream on the site where the first store stood and we still use those same original formulas. United Dairy Farmers remains committed to quality ice cream at a price your family can afford, but leave your bowl at home!
