Anyone get fresh milk delivered to their door? I am having a hard time finding a milk delivery service. I'm in the SW suburbs of Mpls.
Thanks!

are you looking for raw milk or pasteurized? If you are looking for raw there are a lot of pickup sites around the twin cities. Pasteurized could you try someplace like simon delivers (I can't remember their new name).

Simon delivers is now Coborn delivers. http://www.cobornsdelivers.com/

I also know that Kemps delivers to the SW suburbs, although last I checked they don't have organic milk available for delivery. I couldn't find a website for Kemps home milk delivery, but I did find contact info for them on this page (scroll down to grocery delivery) http://www.twincitiesmom.com/delivery_drivethru.html

I'm looking for pasteurized. I'll check into the suggestions above. Thank you!

I have seen a truck driving around (not Simon or Coborns) that is a "milkman" truck, but of course I can't remember the name on it! I want to say Johnny's or something, but I just can't remember.

Hi,

We use Simple Provisions.com - Carter Beck delivers milk (and lots more if you want it) from Crystal Ball farms to the metro area. the milk is the best milk we've ever tasted!!!! It's pastuerized, just not homogenized and from organically fed cows. The milk comes in returnable glass bottles.

My PM thing is not working correctly today for some reason- if you're interested in raw feel free to PM me and I can point you in the right direction. The place I get mine from has drop off sites all over the twin cities.

for raw milk look to Prairie Wind Farms. They deliver the 2nd tuesday of each month and have organic raw milk. The drop sites are Bloomington, Brooklyn Park or Center(I can't remember now) and Eagan. Contact Richard for a price list
richardowen@usfamily.net or call 952-934-2616 and leave a message

Traditional Foods MN is a Yahoo group that might be able to help you all. Go into their database link in the upper left hand corner and look for the dairy farms list at the bottom.

Hariny--   Most raw dairies aren't doing drop sites anymore due to major harassment from the State within the past year.  The best way to protect yourself and your farmer right now is to pick up milk on the farm, which is 100% legal even by the state's interpretation.  Look at my other post upthread, the Trad Foods MN group has great info to help you find the best farm for you.  Good luck!
