2. Sheffield Farms Creamery. When this creamery opened in 1892, it was the first to use the milk pasteurization process in the United States. Unprocessed milk was brought from local dairy farms in 110 lbs. cans via horse and buggy (later flatbed trucks). Until it closed in 1960, milk and milk products were shipped by rail from this location to markets in the metropolitan New York area.
