The Milkman

Every Tuesday our milkman comes to our doorstep and drops off 2 gallons of milk in that cute, insulated Smith Brothers Farms box. Steven and I drink a lot  of milk and it's important that we aren't filling ourselves with the steroid infused, ultra-pasturized phony stuff.

Smith Brothers Farm delivers local, farm fresh milk, eggs, cheese and other products right to your door step. Their milk is delicious and contains no artificial hormones and is never ultra-pasturized. As far as price goes, you're paying practically the same as you would in your local grocery stores for their so called "organic" products! On top of that, delivery is free and they don't even charge you for the box they leave at your doorstep. 

I just love supporting locally owned enterprises such as this one that promote a healthy lifestyle. I'm not going to go on a wild rant about how the food we eat is detrimental to our well being because of the artificial preservatives, steroids, etc. blah, blah, blah...you already know all that. I just want to encourage you to go online and see if similar services are near you! {I bet they are!} Or check out your local farmer's markets {that's where Steven and I signed up with our milkman!}. 

Not only are the products tasty, the animals well cared for, and the cause important, but, more importantly, you get a milkman, people. I didn't need anymore incentive than that! Plus, it's like Christmas morning every Tuesday when that milk arrives! Yep, Christmas in a little, white box, folks. Christmas. It feels that good. So chop, chop! Go get yourself a milkman!

I love that you have a milkman! I've seen a lot of milk boxes appearing on front porches lately, I think it's awesome that it's available and that so many people are able to take advantage of it!

OMG I had no idea they still did this!!

This is one of our favorite things about our neighborhood, walking around and seeing all the milk boxes on people's front porches. It's like a trip back to 1950. If we drank milk we'd be jumping on the bandwagon. Does it come in glass bottles? Cause that would just be the icing on the cake.

That has to be the cutest thing I've ever seen. I had no idea they still provided a milk service in some places. I would love to have something local like that in my community. I know my fiance would love it too!

This is the coolest thing I've ever seen. My husband and I try our best to eat "farm to table" and local but milk is always the hardest for us! I wish we had something like this where we live.

I totally want this! But I've heard in Texas, which is where I live, they are super strict on the milk you drink - why? no idea...for example, it's illegal for a human to drink goats milk in Texas....I see a nutritionist and I'm like you - I don't want all the junky processed stuff but what do you do when the government starts telling what you can and can't have..blah! either way, I'm checking out that website!!

I love this! That box is so cute. Do they give you "old fashioned" glass bottles? I wonder if it's actually healthier. Can you choose like 2% or whatever you usually drink or is it all the same? That's awesome that you're supporting local vendors!
