SCHUYLERVILLE -- If you're not familiar with the King Brothers Dairy, it might make more of an impression when an ambitious expansion is completed in  the fall. The Saratoga County operation is expanding its retail store -- from 300 to 3,000 square feet!

The space is located in front of the creamery at the Kings Road farm. Just like brewpubs that allow guests to sample the products while watching the brewing process, King Brothers will give visitors the opportunity to view the milk bottling process through a glass window from the retail space.

This is just the latest expansion of the business.It debuted its housemade ice cream this summer, and the new retail space will include an ice cream parlor. King Brothers makes all parts of the ice cream from start to finish, using its own milk and cream to create its chocolate and vanilla ice cream mix.

Jan and Jeff King also own the 118-year-old Kings Ransom Farm, which bottled its own milk until the 1960s, while they were growing up. In 2010, they launched King Brothers Dairy to resume bottling milk, and currently deliver to more than 400 homes.

The dairy is located at 311 King Road. Store hours: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Phone: 518-695-6455.
