June is National Dairy Month and we are celebrating the goodness of dairy and, of course, our hard working New England dairy farmers! We are also supporting local families in need through The Great American Milk Drive.


Throughout June, we partnered with Stop & Shop and Price Chopper to bring awareness to the increasing need for milk at local food banks. Milk is the most requested but least donated item. Food bank clients, on average, get one gallon of milk per person per year when they need at least 68! You can help make a difference in the lives of those in need. Bring a donation voucher from the dairy aisle of your local Stop & Shop and/or Price Chopper to the cashier at checkout to donate.


Please donate online today or at your local Stop & Shop or Price Chopper through June 30th and ensure families in need get the milk they deserve!

The History of Milk
Milk delivery! 

In celebration of June Dairy Month, we are taking a look back at the story of milk. We'll explore your burning questions about dairy. For instance, which breed of cow produces the most milk? And when did the very first milk delivery take place? Join us on this interesting historical tour of our favorite beverage - milk!

Exploring the Farm
