A customer centric company providing nutritious dairy products from our farms to your table

About Guida

Guida’s was originally founded by brothers Frank and Alexander Guida in 1947. The company was owned and operated by the Guida family until three years ago when they sold the operation to Dairy Farmers of America co-op in order to make capital improvements and keep up with the growing demand for local milk.

The Dairy Farmers of America is a cooperative of 15,000 farmers who, together, own the Guida processing plant. Major upgrades were made to storage tanks, trucking and to the facility itself when they moved in. Guida’s now processes over 1 million fluid gallons of New England milk every week, 80% of which comes from Connecticut farms. In just three years it has grown into the 2nd largest dairy in New England and even processes some of the milk for the Organic Valley co-op, one of the most respected names in the certified organic milk category.

Because Guida’s is a co-op of dairy farmers, all profits go right back to the farmers. They each maintain impeccable facilities and operate at the highest level of GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices). Guida’s milks have an extended shelf because of their uncompromising quality standards and the integrity of their product line, both of which are validated by frequent third party testing and government inspections.  Guida’s milk is SQF and    (kosher) certified and delivered to Baldor daily. In the words of our Guida sales rep, Peter Atchison, “We’re all about quality, freshness and all about the farmer.”


Guida's Dairy pledges, along with our farmer partners, that all Guida's Dairy fluid milk products come from cows that do not receive artificial growth hormones.
