Wheat Ridge Farm Dairy

Address: 8000 W. 44th Ave., Wheat Ridge 80033

Brothers Robert and Steve Burry bought the Bank Farm Ranch in 1904 and established their dairy wholesaling milk. In 1939, they built a retail store in the Art-Deco style. It became well-known for the "best malts in town" as well as for "pure milk and cream from our own herd." It was truly a family run business. In 1966, they sold it to Alan Roberts, a McDonald's mixes manufacturer. In the 1970s it became a restaurant and bakery. New proprietors took it over and the store closed in 1997.
