who's your milk man?

So a long time ago, in a house far away, we used to get milk delivered. It was a huge operation, and the fact that WE got milk delivered depended on my state assistance. Yup, poor big d and his low paying job. Well anyway, we used to get milk delivered every Monday morning. Ah glorious fresh milk. You wouldn't think so, but it really does taste better. Unfortunately, we moved, or got kicked off WIC, whichever came first. So we went back to the old store bought variety. And it really isn't that we like milk, the kids drink it almost daily, big d and I use it for cereal or cooking. We drink it because we are supposed too. Might as well get something that tastes a little better.

Last week I was up at my mom's house, and she had some milk that was delivered by a different local dairy. Jumping with joy, I called them right there, to see if they possibly delivered to my area. I left a message when no one answered.

A few days later, my mom called and asked if I had set up an account, or decided if I even wanted fresh delivered milk. "Duh?" I told her they had never called me back, so she gave me the number again, I called and set up my first delivery. And it came this morning!! Can I tell you how much more yummy fresh milk on your doorstep is? Not to mention cheese, whipping cream and butter? But the cool thing is when Harry said, "so, we have a milk man?"

Yes son, we do.

and he comes every Monday morning. And the price was right! We will be getting two half gallons for a little more than what you would pay for a whole gallon of milk in the store. BUT it is FRESH. It has no HORMONES, and it is from CACHE VALLEY.

So that is what I'm happy about today. Yup, my fresh milk in my fridge, and the promise that it is coming again next week, and the next week and on and on and so forth.

So jealous! We don't have anything cool like that out here. One day I will live in a real city with milk delivery. One day.

And so cool and retro to have it delivered to the house!

I decided to check out your blog (link from Stacy's "Shine Forth"). I live near Cache Valley and would love fresh milk, especially if it's delivered! Who is it that you get your milk and other dairy products from?

April-It is from rosehill dairy. They are based in Morgan, but the cows live in Hyrum. They deliver to me in west Davis county...

When we lived in Northern Utah, there was a dairy farm just down the road. They didn't deliver, but we loved to go and buy the fresh milk there. It does taste better.

I wonder if there is a place to buy it here, there is a couple of dairy farms in the area, but I only see the cows, not a place to buy milk.

Meemer- Thanks! I'll have to check it out and see if Rosehill, or maybe one of these other dairies in Logan has something.

Too cool! I think we can do that here - lots of people have milk boxes. I should look into it.

I got mine delivered recently until I found out about a dairy farm right up the road about two miles! I can just drive thru and they'll bring the milk out to my car in nice COLD glass bottles. It's the BEST milk (even better than the stuff I had delivered). And you can't get fresher than the cows out in the back of the store!

I am SOOOO jealous considering I live on an island where regular milk is sour by the time it gets here on the ship so we drink either Shelf Milk (kept on a shelf) or soy milk. *sniff* I want fresh cold milk. *sniff*
