Established in 2004

The Old Dairy opened for business on March 1, 2004. We are a family owned business that was started to fulfill a dream for Peggy, who was diagnosed with colon cancer in May of 2003.  The abandoned building was purchased  in the fall of 2003 and the transformations began.   After much planning, construction, demolition, rebuilding, and a lot of elbow grease, The Old Dairy is as you see it today.  

During the construction, many long time residents would see our family out in the community and would say: "Oh, you bought the old Dairy."  We credit the community for giving our business its' name.  The interior renovations continued, based on the nostalgia of the Macomb Dairy that originally started across the street at 217 S. Lafayette, conducting business at 210 S. Lafayette from 1959-1978.  

Our goal is to provide a place to meet up with friends, make new friends, and enjoy time with family.  We provide table games, books, and comfy chairs to encourage our customers to come and hang out. We love our customers!

June 10, 1942 - September 20, 2006

Psalm 18:2-3:  "The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies."

Peg took comfort in the fact that God knew exactly what was “up ahead” for her.  She had faith that HE would be with her every step of the way and save her from her enemy:  CANCER!  Her biggest challenge in her battle was saying goodbye to all of the people that she cared for so deeply on earth.  


She loved The Old Dairy, and so enjoyed creating new friendships, recreating old friendships, and cementing existing friendships.  The restaurant was a great escape for her during her battle. The only evidence of her illness was her beautiful bald head.  Her energy was unstoppable!  Many remember her running around 'taking care of people', often times providing a listening ear to someone who was struggling.

She is with her Savior, Redeemer, Rock, and Friend, in perfect health!  As promised—HE saved her!  What a gift God has given us…..the promise of eternal life!  We will see her again in heaven! AMEN!
