ABOUT GRAFF DAIRY
Opened in 1964, the original Graff Dairy was a Grand Junction favorite for 50 years. Known for its fresh, hometown milk and legendary ice cream, Graff Dairy had scores of loyal customers throughout the decades. Perhaps it was the secret recipe loaned to Graff from the Enstrom family that made the dairy so celebrated, or the sense of ownership felt by the community, but many were saddened when Graff closed its doors in August of 2014—seemingly forever.
In 2015 local entrepreneur Darin Carei purchased the property and announced to much celebration that he would reopen Graff. The original building has been doubled in size and fully renovated. The new Graff Dairy will offer all of the old favorites and more, including homemade ice cream, shakes, Mountain Glacier treats, coffee and espresso, and has plans to offer food items and a line of specialty cheeses.
“The Grand Junction Original is back,” comments Darin Carei, the new owner. “We have a professional staff, drive-thru service, new and improved products, and of course the flavors that kept locals coming here for over 50 years. Bring the whole family, we’re waiting to see you!”
