Alderney Dairy was located at the junction of Route 202 (Littleton Road) and Route 10 just north of Morris Plains. It was a great place for Ice Cream and Milk Shakes. You felt that it must be fresh since you could look out of the windows and see the cows. Alderney was founded in 1894 as Newark Milk and Cream Co., later becoming the Alderney Dairy Co. By 1936, it included 10 creameries, 800 dairy farms, six branch-distributing plants and its pasteurization and bottling plant in Newark - making the company one of the largest independent dairies in the United States. It took it's name from the Alderney cow, which later was replaced by Jerseys and Guernseys. All these names came from several small islands in the English Channel.
