Description:
Dari Mart is a chain of convenience stores located in the U.S. state of Oregon. Dari Mart has 43 stores located exclusively (as of 2011) within the Willamette Valley of Oregon, from Albany to Cottage Grove. It is most notable as a supplier of milk, ice cream, and other dairy products from Lochmead Farms, one of the largest independent dairy farms in the Pacific Northwest. Most store locations are in the Eugene-Springfield metropolitan area in Lane County, Oregon. Lochmead Farms sells 1.5 million gallons of milk and half a million gallons of ice cream a year through the chain of stores, and the joint store-farm operation employs more than 450 people.

History

The first Dari Mart store opened in 1965 as a way to market the farm's dairy products. Gladys and Howard Gibson established Lochmead Farms in 1941, and has been owned for three generations by the Gibson family of Junction City, Oregon. Today, about about 20 Gibson family members spread across three generations work with the Dari Mart and Lochmead Farm companies.Mosley, Joe. "Family farm's crop grows into dairy, chain of stores."
