United Dairy Farmers

CROWN JEWEL DONOR DIAMOND

United Dairy Farmers first opened its doors in Norwood, Ohio in 1940, serving fresh milk and ice cream of the highest quality. Within a decade, the family-run business had expanded to 9 locations, and it now operates in 3 states with nearly 200 store locations. UDF has been committed to serving Cincinnati since its earliest beginnings, and remains an important pillar of the community today.

The Diamond Jewel symbolizes the ultimate promise of commitment. UDF will build a diamond-themed art installation along the CROWN trail at the intersection of Wasson Way and Montgomery Road, just steps from where the original offices were constructed.
