The Adohr Farms milk dairy was located in Tarzana, California at Ventura Boulevard and
Lindley Avenue. The dairy was established by Merritt Adamson 1916, and named for his
wife, Rhoda (spelled backwards). During the Depression, the Adamson’s sold off most of
their land. In the late 1940s, Adohr Farms moved to Camarillo, and was eventually sold
to Southland Corporation in the mid-1960s.
