1880 to 1950's - Bedford Farms was founded by the J.B. Prescott Company and is the longest continuously running business in the town of Bedford. During the late 40's and 50's the dairy began making ice cream. The ice cream was sold at Bedford Farms and also wholesale under the Bedford Farms label to local stores and homes.
1950's to 1984 - During this period, the dairy business went through many changes. Small dairy operations and home delivery were a part of small town family life. However, by the late 60's, many local dairies gave way to regional dairies. After 80 years of dairying, Bedford Farms milk division was sold and the business was operated just as a local ice cream stand.
