History Legacy Dairy was located in Hallam, Nebraska. The dairy processed raw milk from local farms, pasteurized it, and placed it in returnable glass bottles. The milk was available in grocery stores in local grocery stores. The dairy only used milk from cows that were not receiving growth hormones. In addition to white milk, the dairy featured chocolate, strawberry, cotton candy, and rootbeer flavored milks.
The dairy, which opened in 2006, closed in the Fall of 2008 for several reasons, including milk supply problems.
