Home delivery of milk is making a comeback. Admittedly, in some communities, it never left. In many, however, regular appearances by the milk man ended long ago. Why have milk (and cheese and sometimes even ice cream!) delivered? Ideal Bite posts some compelling reasons, detailed below:
-Never make a trip to the grocery store just because you forgot must-haves like milk or cheese again. Some even
offer ice cream.
-Milk deliverers reuse their bottles, which are often made of glass (Americans chuck out 470,000 tons of milk cartons each year); few people recycle them.
-You’ll support local farms, and avoid the transport energy associated with national brands shipped from
-An abundance of calcium-dairy’s a great source of it. And organic milk has none of the hormone rBGH.
In many cases, you don’t even need to be home to receive your delivery. Suppliers provide an insulated cooler and pack your dairy deliciousness inside. Interested? Check out this state-by-state directory to see if home milk delivery is available where you live. You can also check local.com and insert “dairy farm” in the search engine. For those farms, you’ll need to call and see if home delivery is available. If not, you might be able to get a delivery service going if you can wrangle up enough other interested folks. Why buy the cow when you can get the milk brought to your doorstep?
