    The Milkman Returns



    I reported earlier about buying milk from a local dairy.  The milk is more naturally produced, without growth hormone or antibiotics.  This is closer to my philosophy on food, and it is cheaper too!



    I decided to share this dairy's milk with my co-workers now.  Every Monday, I collect orders for milk that they want, they pay me the cost for the milk, and I buy it and bring it in the next morning, since I pass by the dairy on my way in.  A little effort that helps several people.



    This is a great way to save people some money on their food bill, gives them a more natural product, and it is also a good way to meet other workers that you do not work with normally.  The first week started with about 1 1/2 gallons, and next week, I should be bringing in about 6 1/2 gallons!  Who wants to pay $4 for a gallon of milk, when you can get it for less than $3?



    For the equivalent, organic milk, the cost is over $7 a gallon!   Send a message to these commercial farmers by sharing with your co-workers locally produced milk, and support your local business!
