Founded by brothers Barclay A. and Dwight P. Kinsman at the start of the second decade of the 20th century, Kinsman Brothers Dairy operated an extensive dairy farm on Thompson Street in Middleborough and was one of the largest dairies locally. Later, Barclay Kinsman operated his own dairy on North Street.
