History of “D” Dutchmen Dairy

Chris and Nellie DewittChris and Nellie Dewitt


Chris and Nellie Dewitt established D Dutchmen Dairy in 1978 which today continues to be run by Nellie and the Dewitt family.


Over the past 35 years D Dutchmen Dairy has established their brand throughout Western Canada mainly by word-of-mouth. Today, tourists return to D Dutchmen Dairy as second and third generation visitors.  D Dutchmen Dairy continues to offer old-fashioned, hand-made dairy products with a focus on top quality ingredients. D Dutchmen Dairy products are all produced on location.


In 2004, The Vancouver Sun reviewed D Dutchmen Dairy calling our ice cream, “B.C.’s Best Ice Cream”.




In 2015, Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo recognizes Jake Dewitt at the BC Legislative Assembly for his commitment to volunteering.
