Creamer's Dairy Milk Cap - Fairbanks Alaska Dairy - Grade A Milk Cap Yellow Cap:
unused milk cap A Bit of history on Creamer's Dairy Farm
In 1928 Charles and Anna Creamer purchased what is now known as Creamer’s field from Charles and Belle Hinckley.
During the 1930s and 1940s, the Creamer's worked hard to modernize and expand the business. They built two large ``Louden'' barns--designed by the Louden Machinery Co. of Iowa--which still give Creamer's its distinctive visual appeal. The first and largest barn cost $13,700--more than the entire dairy was worth 10 years earlier. Its hayloft held 165 tons of hay, enough to feed 55 cows through the winter.The 1940s and early 1950s Creamer's Dairy prospered, selling milk, ice cream, sherbet, cottage cheese, whipping cream, buttermilk, chocolate milk, and even a non-dairy orange drink. World War II was good for business at first, because it enabled them to secure a lucrative contract to sell milk and ice cream to Ladd Air Force Base (which is now actually Fort Wainwright-the army base in Fairbanks, Alaska). But post-war changes in shipping (air and the newly opened Alaska Highway) allowed outside competitors to enter the local market. These and other economic factors were taking their toll by the late 1950s. The dairy ended production in 1966.

*We offer local pick-up(we have a storefront in Fairbanks, Alaska)- Please let us know before payment is made*Don't forget to check out our other items! We have LOTS of vintage items, Alaska souvenirs, collectibles, novelties and much more listed in our store !!
offer 1 day handling, meaning we mail items within 24 hours of purchase
(except on weekends and non mailing holidays of course) , but seeing
how we are in North Pole Alaska, items may take 3-5 days longer to
arrive at the destination than what 's notice quotes. They no longer
process mail in Alaska, so an item I mail here takes 1to get from North
Pole to Anchorage, then usually 1 day to be flown to a processing
center (we've been told by postal employee that it's in Denver
Colorado), then 1 day to get sorted. So there's a lag time of 3 days in
there that does not take into consideration for Sellers that are in
Alaska. So please keep that in mind when buying from us to add those
extra travel days to the expected arrival time that sends you.

***Please Note:The photos are taken on a measuring mat or next to a ruler for sizing. Some start at the 1 inch mark on both top and bottom (the gird does not have markings on the outside so we have to move it up an inch so you can see the numbers)... you just have to count over by inches to see the exact dimensions of the patch on the grid - any questions please ask.
