The Milkman Is Back: Fresh Milk Delivery in Delray Beach

Heritage flyer.jpg
The old-fashioned milkman is back, but like every recycled trend, he's been updated. No longer is he merely a milkman but a delivery dude. The Delray Delivery Dudes provide what in more provincial times might have been delivery service but is now called "concierge service."

And while back in the day your parents or grandparents -- depending on how old you are -- were happy just to get their milk delivered, nowadays locavores want organic raw milk from happy cows with names.

Ironically, the milk you'll get delivered by the Dudes is probably far more like the substance your great grandparents would have recognized as milk than what you can pick up at your local mega grocery store.

Raw, unpasteurized, unhomogenized milk is thick. It separates in the container and has to be shaken like orange juice before you pour it over your cereal. Unless what you want is heavy cream in your coffee -- in that case, just pour without shaking.

In fact, according to Svetlana Simon, half of the husband-and-wife team that runs Heritage Hen Farm, you can make nine products with raw milk in your very own home.

There's the milk itself: Let it separate for heavy cream, then skim it and use the bottom as part of fertilizer for your garden; shake the cream and get whipped cream; shake it more and get butter; let it clabber and make buttermilk; get some starter and make yogurt; let it curdle and get curds and whey.

Just in case you were wondering, it is illegal to sell raw milk in the State of Florida.

 

TITLE XXXIII REGULATION OF TRADE, COMMERCE, INVESTMENTS, AND SOLICITATIONS CHAPTER 502 MILK AND MILK PRODUCTS

The Delray Delivery Dudes started it, but they're expanding from West Palm Beach to Fort Lauderdale. So now, South Florida has truly become the land of (raw) milk and honey.

 @dude That is not true. It is totally legal to sell raw milk in Florida. It is illegal to cross it over state lines or sell raw dairy brought into Florida, from out of state.
