Gay Lea Foods is committed to dedicated stewardship of Ontario’s dairy heritage as shown with the purchase of the Gay Lea Dairy Heritage Museum in Aylmer, Ontario. It is worth the visit, as this wonderful 100 acre site showcases the rich dairy and agricultural history of Southern Ontario, and hosts many school groups each year to teach about dairy and co-operation. In January 2018, Gay Lea Foods announced a partnership with the Ontario Co-operative Association to move the Cooperative Young Leaders Camp to the museum site, so many exciting changes are happening to host the many young people visiting us!
