The Lily List
Living the Good Life - Westchester, Food, Fashion, & Fun
I don’t know about you but I am constantly looking for ways to make my life more efficient so I can jam more things to do into it. Sometimes we need to just take a break, slow it down…and get our milk delivered like they did one hundred years ago.
Why this business is featured on The Lily List:
Glass-bottled milk. Glass is non-reactive which means it doesn’t leak harmful chemicals, doesn’t change taste, and won’t stain. Finding out Hudson Milk delivered glass-bottles was a major plus and reasonably priced at $3.85.
Hormone-free and pasturized milk. Most milk now is ultra-pasturized to extend shelf life which I guess is good, but lacks taste and nutrition. Since the milk is only pasturized, it won’t last months, but it is said to last at least 10 days if refrigerated properly. I order every two weeks and my milk lasts through that time.
Reduce your carbon footprint. I know we at least try to buy local so less fuel is used to deliver our food. The cows are from Battenkill Valley Creamery in Salem and delivery is from Shrub Oak.
You can order other things also. Runabout eggs, Organic yogurt, Cheese, Meat and chicken, and more. My every other week order looks like whole milk, 2% milk, 1lb of ground beef, and quart of plain organic yogurt.
Delivered weekly or every other week depending on location.
Tom Rubino. He built this business on relationships with customers, quality product, and personal delivery. When I was first researching this service for my family a couple of months ago, Tom helped me with all of my questions, like the difference between grass fed and grain finished, and still answers my questions that come up today.
1/2 Gallon Glass – whole, 2%, 1%, skim, creamline ($3.85), Quart of plain organic yogurt ($6.75), Grass fed ground beef ($7.99/lb). $15 minimum order. $3 delivery fee.
