Turkey Hill, a high point overlooking the Susquehanna River, is a local landmark in Southeastern Pennsylvania. It is also the name of one of the most successful ice cream, frozen novelty and iced tea companies in the United States.
Turkey Hill Dairy’s customer-focused, locally driven culture goes all the way back to the roots of its name. Derek Frey, director of logistics at Turkey Hill, said that when his great-grandfather Armor Frey founded the dairy in 1931 during the Great Depression, he was just trying to make money selling his family’s extra milk. Originally, he called his company Armor P. Frey Dairy, but that didn’t stick with his customers.
