Dairy Barn is a chain of regional convenience stores located in Long Island, New York, with headquarters in Elwood, New York. The stores are distinguished by their drive-through feature and their red barn appearance with little red silo.

The number of operating Dairy Barn stores has declined from 51 in 2005[1] to five as of 2017.[2]

History[edit]

In 1939 Edgar Cosman, a Swiss textile manufacturer with business interests in the United States, purchased a dairy farm on Long Island. In 1961 Cosman's son, Dieter Cosman, expanded the dairy's wholesale milk business into a chain of retail, drive-through convenience stores named "Dairy Barn."[3]
