The Coventry Parlor at Laurel Locks historic property has been in business over 50 years. Formerly called Coventry Ice Cream Parlor, some things have stayed the same (like the ice cream) but many things have been added. The parlor now offers a full breakfast and lunch menu as well as catering for small events. Just about anyone you talk to has a memory of the ice cream shop. If you don't have a memory from the "old days" then why not start making memories now. Enjoy our quaint dining room for breakfast or lunch or the hustle and bustle of the ice cream bar in the heat of the summer!

In 1952, Mr. and Mrs. Earl D. Hurst purchased a farm located along 272 in the Village of Oregon, PA. Mom and Pop Hurst had a dream of serving their neighbors and friends by selling fresh products from their farm.
A number of years later, after their family of ten children were raised, Mom and Pop’s dream became a reality. In 1974, they built and operated a small dairy store from which they sold fresh milk, eggs, produce and Oregon Dairy Ice Cream! A few years later the Hurst Family decided to build a new store which was completed in 1979.
Since 1974, the Hurst family has continued to sell Oregon Dairy Ice Cream in the Market at Oregon Dairy and now in The Milkhouse Ice Cream Shoppe that offers over 25 flavors of delicious hand-dipped ice cream, signature sundaes, milkshakes and floats.
Perrydell Farm is a working and fully self-sufficient dairy farm. They own 170 acres of land and also rent an additional 180 acres where they plant and harvest almost everything they need to feed their cows.
The farm was bought in 1923 by Howard Perry. His two sons, George and Roger eventually took over the farm and they had the foresight to start bottling their own milk in 1963. Because of this approach, the farm now supports four families from the milk of only 130 cows. This is quite an accomplishment in today's farming economy.
The farm is now owned and operated by George's sons, Tom, Greg, and Chip. Everyone in the family stays involved in the farm, since there is always work to be done.
