About us

The Hewitt’s story began in 1887, when founder, James Hewitt, began delivering milk to the people of Hagersville, Ontario in a horse-drawn wagon. Today, Hewitt’s Dairy continues to produce an expansive range of quality Canadian dairy products, including a full range of fluid milk, a variety of specialty goat milk products, and the rich Hewitt’s ice cream we are renowned for, manufactured in over 60 flavours and served at the celebrated Hewitt’s Dairy Bar north of Hagersville.

A proud member of the Gay Lea Foods Co-operative family since 2014, Hewitt’s is proudly owned by Canadian dairy farmers and remains committed its rural Ontario legacy. We are honored to provide the fresh, quality Canadian dairy products our consumers know and love, made from milk provided by local Ontario dairy farmers.
