Since the 1950s, generations of customers have been enjoying the finest in ice cream: Mercer's Dairy. In January of 2002, Quality Dairy Farms, Inc., a group of nine farm families from Lewis and Jefferson Counties, purchased Mercer's Dairy with the vision to showcase their premium quality products. For over 25 years, the close-knit group of farms has been honored with numerous "Dairy of Distinction" awards, as well as prestigious Empire State "Super Milk" quality awards. In January 2013, two of the original owners of Quality Dairy Farms, Inc., purchased the company forming a 100% female owned business.
