Welcome to Puleo's Dairy

In 1923 Charles Puleo affectionately known as “Charlie” began his career producing ice cream at the Essex Co-operative Creamery located at 80 Margin Street in downtown Salem, MA

Starting in 1928, with a Modal T pick up truck, Charlie Puleo established his own business known then and now as Puleo’s Dairy. He began home delivery routes in the Salem MA area from his processing plant located at 23 River Street.  Growing steadily into the 1940’s the company moved into a state-of–the–art dairy and opened a seasonal roadside ice cream stand on our site at 376 Highland Avenue. An entire dairy renovation in 1989 culminated with a new dairy bar open year round.

Expanding our product line and delivery service areas has kept us moving forward but we remain true to our original process. Our milk is from hand-picked Massachusetts herds. The cows which produce our milk are NOT treated with bovine growth hormone. All our milk is tested for antibiotics and then processed and bottled in environmentally friendly glass returnable bottles, as well as, recyclable plastic bottles to meet the needs of all our customers. Freshly processed milk is available in both our Highland Avenue location and in our new store at 133 Washington Street in downtown Salem.
