Breau's Dairy was a milk distributor in Rumford, Maine, it has since been turned into Community Energy, an oil and heating business. I believe Rumford Historic Society has pictures of the building when it was Breau's Dairy. Breau's Dairy Bar was a restaurant in Bethel, which has been sold and is now Bethel's Best. It was owned by Rick Breau who now owns Mountain Valley Variety, formerly known as 4 Corners on Hancock Street. He also owns(d) Rick's Place just off Rt 4 in Wilton and I believe Breau's Too in Bryant Pond.

Yes, It was a time when us baby boomers look back and remember with a sense of loss.Arther Breau owned a small bussiness Had 18 milk trucks and would deliver milk to homes, schools; and hospital. Would go to local farmers to pick up raw milk and pasteurized homogenize then bottle. No hormone Back then.

Rick Breau does not own Breau's Too in Bryant Pond. His brother, my husband, Bob owns it and has for almost 15 years now. We have driven by the old house not too long ago. Took a picture to show my mother-in-law. The house looks great!

I wish I could figure out how to change my town and state. I stumbled onto this site. We are from West Paris. My husband and family grew up and worked the dairy. We have many wonderful memories of it. My father-in-law was a hard working man and built that dairy from the ground up. We are the ones that own Breau's Too in Bryant Pond.

I don't know if anyone will see this since the last post was in Feb 2009. I just happened to stumble on this. I was the little girl who lived next door to Breau's dairy in the 60's. My father was Ray Rouleau. He passed in 2002. I went home to Rumford when he past and went to my old house next door to the dairy. My parents house was still there and although the dairy was closed it brought a tear to my eye remembering all the great times I had playing with all the Breau's kids!
Playing in the barns and drinking that rich chocolate milk! I remember Frenchie who worked there. I just loved him everyday he would give us a bottle of chocolate milk.
That was my foundest memories of being a little girl living next to the dairy. And I remember "Mamma Jill" who lived across the street from us also!!! Wow I can not beleive I found this!
