In 1872, Henry and Mary Tully purchased a farm on Hollis Street. In 1901, Charles E Tully, the son of Henry and Mary, purchased the Drake property, located further up on Hollis St. The Drake property consisted of 40 acres of land. The Tully family continued to add land and expand the farm over time. In 1919, Charles E. bought the Rideout Farm on Fletcher St. The farm consisted of 200 acres of land. In 1940, Charles and his son George purchased the Lawrence Farm, which is located in Pepperell, MA and Hollis, NH, adding another 120 acres to the farm.
George, his son Charles W., and his brother Eugene formed Tully Farms Inc. in 1970. George's grandson Charles W. Jr. joined the corporation after high school and is currently the president. The Tully Farm has undergone many changes throughout the years, including new barns and technology, and the family plans to continue their dedication to quality farming for many years to come.
Since 1872, the Tully Family has been milking cows in Dunstable MA. Almost 150 years later, we have continued to raise holstein cows to produce high quality, fresh milk. Six generations have worked (or are currently working) on the farm with help from many family and friends along the way. Tully Farms Dairy is excited to bring new local options to the people of Dunstable and the surrounding towns. Our milk, sold in glass bottles, is pasteurized using a process called vat pasteurization. Vat pasteurization uses a lower temperature for a longer period of time. This gives our milk a rich, creamy flavor with more nutrients than what you find at the grocery store.
