Turkey Hill Experience Facts and Information

Turkey Hill Experience Site

  • Turkey Hill Dairy is deeply committed to preserving Lancaster County's farmland and open spaces. As such, rather than constructing a brand new building, the company chose to undertake an adaptive reuse project and rehabilitate a vacated building in Lancaster County's borough of Columbia for the new Turkey Hill Experience.
  • The site is the former Ashley & Bailey Silk Mill, which had been vacant for more than 25 years.
