Portland's Alpenrose Dairy celebrated its 100th year in 2016. The dairy plans to move operations to Clackamas.

Alpenrose Dairy, a southwest Portland institution for more than a century, will move its operations to Clackamas next year after purchasing another dairy business.

Alpenrose was sold to Washington-based Smith Brothers Farms in 2019 amid a rift among its family owners. Descendants of Alpenrose’s founder retained the dairy’s real estate, and a developer has proposed to turn the roughly 56-acre property into a housing subdivision.
