SARATOGA The New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Commissioner, Richard A. Ball, announced King Brothers Dairy received two gold awards in the 2022 Dairy Products Competition. The announcement was made during Dairy Day at the Great New York State Fair. The competition highlights world-class dairy products in New York state.

The Capital District-based dairy farm took home gold in the “Fluid Milk” category for small processors and gold in the “Chocolate Milk” category for dairies of all sizes.

“New York is known for its fantastic dairy products—from its leading yogurts to its artisan cheeses and everything in between. Our dairy farmers and processors are among the best in the country and take great pride in bringing their products to consumers across the country,” said Commissioner Ball. 

“Our customers are very vocal about their love for our milk,” said King Brothers Dairy co-owner Jeff King. “They tell us ‘It’s crazy good!’ So, it’s pretty exciting to win these awards and hear the love for our milk echoed by our Department of Agriculture.”

King Brothers Dairy is run by brothers Jeff and Jan King, along with wives Becky King and Pandora Davis, respectively. They are the fourth generation of farmers to take the helm of the 120-year-old farm. 

The King brothers also acknowledge the award was hard-earned. “We are a family-run business, not a big corporation,” Jan remarks. “It takes a lot of work to produce our premium products here on the farm, and I think our customers enjoy seeing and knowing where our milk comes from.”

In addition to the milk categories, King Brothers Dairy also took home a gold award in the “Flavored Yogurt” category.

King Brothers Dairy products are available at retail locations throughout the Capital District from Albany to Glens Falls. For a full list of products and store locations, visit the King Brothers Dairy website at
