The origins of Hill Country Dairies began in the late 1970's. As a supplier of mostly dairy products, we served various restaurants and institutional facilities. Over the next 20 years our product line grew, but it was not until the 1990's that new ownership brought on more expansion. Our product offerings expanded to include various brands of cheese, ice cream and cultured products.
During the 1990's Hill Country Dairies also saw its geographical footprint expand throughout Texas. This expansion came through the acquisition of other distributors in various locations, as well as, strategic expansion into new territories. In 2014, Hill Country Dairies was purchased by 40 year Texas Dairy Veteran Pat Boyle. Today our company has grown to cover the Gulf Coast from Baytown to Brownsville and north to Dallas.
As we have expanded our goal has always been to sell quality products and provide a level of service second to none. It is through this commitment to service that we have developed into a trusted provider to many restaurants, hotels and schools.
With customized delivery schedules, fair pricing and a commitment to serve our customers needs, Hill Country Dairies is a distributor that our customers can count on for fresh quality products.
