I thought I remember reading about a family run company that drives a truck to peoples homes & delivers fresh milk..... just like the old days. Anyone know of anything like that in the area? It may not have been in Bucks County........ maybe Lancaster... but if anyone has any info. on a milk service like that please post! I tried google but found nothing.

I don't know of any, but your post made me think of when we had milk delivered back in the 50's. It came in glass bottles and was so much better than the paper (or plastic) cartons.

I live in Montco and definitely remember having milk delivered within the last 6 years. I am fairly sure it was Rosenbergers. I don't know how much of a bargain you are going to be getting though since gas prices are so high.

I love the idea of home delivered milk, but Rosenbergers is readily available in the grocery stores now so I don't know what the advantage would be. I think that organic milk tastes better and that's also available at grocery stores.

I love organic milk too. My favorite is soy milk though and I'm finding it comparative with cows milk prices!! It's so much healthier for you!!

Merrlane (and anyone else that's interested )
I found a couple of interesting links for home grown produce and a place that sells milk in glass jugs! Bolton Farm Market This place is in Silverdale, Bucks county.

And this link has farms in the Delaware and Lehigh Valley area that sell their products: Bucks County Cooperative Extension - Fresh From The Farm Markets
