I worked at both Jessup's in Burbank CA in 1973-75. One on Burbank Blvd & one on GLenoaks. If anyone has any pics of them, please post them. Thanks, Mark

My Grandfather and Uncle both worked for Jessup. My Grandfather Herman Hill started with Jessup back in the late 30's as a milker... He worked at the Glenoaks location. Then towards the end of his career he was known for making the Egg Nog they were famous for.... I have so many wonderful memories at the farm....

Many fond memories of Jessups Dairy. My father, Rodney "Dutch" Southwick delivered milk from about 1968-1970. One of his accounts was a woman in an iron Lungwho resided in La Crescenta. One of my fondest memory was visiting the farm and watching the milking process.

Hello! Does anyone know where this location was? Could this be the Jessup's off of Foothill Blvd in La Crescenta / Glendale? Does anyone know if these drive-ins (specifically the Jessups Dairy Drive-in off of Foothill Boulevard) had gasoline for sale? Thanks for the info!

This picture is the drive thru dairy on the N/E corner of Ocean View Blvd and Foothill Blvd, La Canada. It is still there, but now called Alta Dena Express.
