BUSINESS: BUSINESS & COMMUNITY INITIATIVES
This article highlights and supports
the work that's being done in the
community to satisfy the Physical
Environment dimension of our
Prosperity Indicators

Cleaning our
Waterways
T

he warm sun beating down on your face and the
cool flowing water gently tickling your toes as
you meander through the twists and turns of the
Conestoga River. This picturesque moment takes us back to
the days when our waterways were the recreation of choice
during the summer. But, sadly, this will become a distant,
fond memory if we don't take care of our waterways.
One local business is stepping up to the plate and helping
Lancaster remain a place where people want to live, work
and play.
When you think of Turkey Hill Dairy, based in Conestoga,
PA, you may immediately think of their assortment of ice
cream and other dairy products, along with their iced
teas and lemonades. But, you may not realize that there
are more to these products than just their taste. This
local manufacturing giant is making a concerted effort to
enhance our quality of life one pint and gallon at a time.

ONE FARM AT A TIME
In January 2018, Turkey Hill Dairy launched an initiative
with the Maryland and Virginia Milk Co-Op, supported by
the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, to ensure that good
conservation practices are in place among dairy farmers to
control soil and nutrient runoff into streams.
The long-term goal of this partnership is to improve the
water quality of our local waterways, and ultimately the
Chesapeake Bay. Turkey Hill Dairy's goal is to have 100% of
its milk suppliers have conservation plans in place by 2019.
This initiative won't come without a cost. Turkey Hill Dairy
wants to buy the best milk from the best farms and will pay
a small premium for milk that's produced on an
eco-friendly farm.
So, how does the program work?
