White milk label gives nod to vintage Oakhurst logo design
PORTLAND — This throwback Thursday, guess who’s throwing it back? Oakhurst Dairy! To celebrate its 100th anniversary, Oakhurst is having some fun with its white milk packaging – the Maine dairy company has created a vintage label using a beloved version of its acorn dating from the 50s to give New Englanders a little taste of nostalgia. The limited-edition packaging will be available on all Oakhurst half gallon and pint white milk products starting in early June, so grab it at local grocery and convenience stores while you can!
“We’re excited to roll out this limited-edition packaging as a nod to yesteryear and engage our loyal consumers in our anniversary celebration,” said John Bennett, president and CEO of Oakhurst Dairy. “Over the last 100 years, we’ve changed up our packaging and labels a few times but one thing that has always remained the same since 1921 is our delicious, nutritious milk sourced from Maine dairy farms. We hope consumers have as much fun reminiscing as we’ve had and enjoy having this little piece of Oakhurst nostalgia in their fridge at home.”

Oakhurst: A Small Company Committed to Doing What’s Right
Oakhurst Dairy was founded in 1921 and started delivering milk in glass bottles to homes on two routes in Portland via horse drawn wagons. 100 years later, Oakhurst processes nearly half a million gallons of milk per week that is sourced from local Maine dairy farmers to make its line of dairy products. In turn, those products are delivered to more than 1,800 grocery stores, convenient stores, and schools throughout Maine, New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts each year. Once there, a little piece of Maine in a carton makes its way to breakfast, lunch, and dinner tables across the region.
