OUR HISTORY & OUR STORY

About Us

Historically, the original dairy, called King's Dairy, was simply that and only sold raw milk. John King sold it to Dale and Betty Jo Johnson in 1973, who then opened a market which they ran until their retirement in 2009. The market, "Dale's Dairy," was a landmark in the area marked by the 15-foot cow on the corner of the property on Clements and North (which remains today), and sold basics that folk might have forgotten to pick up at the grocery store. It was then run as the Target Range Market until April 2014 when the Becks took ownership and transformed it into what it is today, The Olde Dairy. With the community in mind, The Trough, opened it's doors in June of 2015. We're here for the neighborhood. We're thrilled to be here and look forward to meeting the needs of our neighbors!

The Trough gives customers the option of sitting in comfy armchairs with a cup of coffee in front of the fireplace, to hang out on the patio, or anything in between. Offering sandwiches, soups and salads, a coffee bar with locally-made baked goods, smoothies and Big Dipper ice cream, we are here to meet all of your needs. Whether you want to meet up with your friends for lunch, host a party in our beautiful space that can accommodate up to 60 or have us cater your event, The Trough is the place for you!
