THE OORGAUM DAIRY - KGF

Fresh pasteurized Milk was supplied to every mining house, every morning by the Mining Oorgaum Dairy in glass pint bottles sealed with a foil lid with the date embossed on it. It was left on our door steps by Four O’clock in the morning. The milk supplied by the Diary was fresh and creamy. As children we all grew up on this milk. The Oorgaum Dairy had its own herd of healthy Jersey Cows and a separate section for pasteurizing the milk. The whole operation was carried on in a very hygienic way and when I was young I remember that Mr. King, an officer of the Company was in charge of the Oorgaum Dairy. The Milk from this dairy was supplied to the whole Mining area. I still remember the cold milk, Ice creams and milk shakes we enjoyed at the Oorgaum Dairy that was just opposite to the Bombay Camp Cricket Grounds. Sadly the Oorgaum Dairy is also now closed.
