Goerss's Dairy


The W. C. Goerss Dairy is started in Martinsville in 1925 by Wilmer C. Goerss. It seems likely that his brother Gerhart is involved early on. By 1937 the "G. V. Goerss Dairy" at 1270 Pierce Ave is selling milk, cream, and "Dari-O Orange drink."

Wilmer passes in 1951 at 1301 Pierce. By 1952 the dairy is at 370 Oliver Street.

Gerhard V. Goerss dies in 1971, and is wife Leona in 1981. Their sons, James and Donald, carry on the business into at least the 1980s.
