The Milkman Is Back: Fresh Milk Delivery in Delray Beach


Since the Heritage Hen Farm is a bit out west and their farm front store is open only from 5 to 7 p.m. weekdays (hey, they've got a farm to run), the Dudes offered to deliver the farm's goods once a week. This is especially convenient during the summer months, when the weekly Delray GreenMarket is on hiatus.

Otherwise, the Heritage Hen Farm stand can be found there every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. from October through May.

I had some stuff delivered:  a jar of raw local honey ($14 for 1.25 pounds),

a half dozen eggs ($4),

and a quart of raw cow's milk ($6).

(I admit, I chose quart size because it came in an old-fashioned glass bottle.)

It was all delivered on time and in perfect condition. They only deliver once a week, on Fridays, and the last day to get your order in each week is Wednesday. The delivery charge is $15, and if you won't be home, leave a cooler outside your front door. You can leave an envelope of cash for the Dudes like I did or pay online by credit card.

As the Dudes expand their franchises from Fort Lauderdale to Lake Worth, they will bring the Heritage Hen Farm deliveries with them. Check back with Clean Plate Charlie for expansion updates.

Place your order on the Delivery Dudes website, or call them at 561-900-7060. Tell the Dudes that New Times says hi. (It won't get you a discount or anything. The Dudes are just nice guys.)

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

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.

processed, homogenized, pasteurized commercial milk is garbage junk food. raw milk is nutrient dense yummy delicious.
