Medosweet Farms was established in 1975 by Cliff Flintoff. He ran three home delivery routes with a milk truck leased from Smith Brothers Dairy in Kent Washington. He delivered dairy products to homes six days per week with the help of his four children.

In 1979 Cliff and his wife Carolyn sold their home delivery route business and dedicated themselves to building a wholesale dairy and foodservice distribution company. Today Medosweet is based in Kent, Washington with a warehouse & distribution center in Portland, Oregon. The company is managed by Eric, Bryan, and Craig Flintoff with their sister Teresa Schenk. They are continuing the Flintoffs’ original commitment to exceptional customer service as the Pacific Northwest’s premier dairy and specialty food supplier. They are currently using the Medosweet Vision Statement as their guide, now and for the future of Medosweet.
