Each year, the family-owned New England dairy donates five cents for every container of Oakhurst Egg Nog and Lite Egg Nog sold. In 2011, more than 390,00 cartons were sold from mid-October through December. To date, Oakhurst Dairy has donated more than $200,000 to The Salvation Army of Northern New England.
