A Little Tradition on Your Breakfast Table

We are all interested in shopping local, to have food that has traveled the smallest distance to reach our tables. It is not all convenience and cheapness anymore. Food and how we buy it has a connection to our communities, our families as well as to our traditions and memories.This is an easy, convenient, only pennies more, simply joyous way of doing this.

Get yourself a milkman!Such simple pleasure to be had in opening the door and finding your fresh milk on the doorstep. Such convenience in a new swizzy email supported ordering process...you can change your delivery right up to nine o'clock the night before! Such variety....milk, eggs, juice, fruit boxes and even pet food! Such a sense of tradition, a pride in supporting millkman and not the local GIANT!

Recycle the last of your plastic bottles and have a peep at these lovely folks website

I wish we had local milk delivery here. I would sign up in an instant. I remember living in England for a bit as a child, the milk there was so different than here in the US. It had cream at the top. I remember my aunt would let me sip some as a treat once in a while.

Locally made items are starting to become more popular here in the US too. Luckily I live in an area surrounded by farms. We can get so many things fresh from the farm...eggs, veggies, etc.

I have a small business making candies and I think part of why my business does ok is because people like buying from a small local company, not a GIANT.

it is so important, its good for the community but most importantly it seems to inspire creativity and quality as people feel they can afford to make the best that they can without being tied to cheapness. surely food is the most important thing we spend our money on! x

No one delivers to us, otherwise I would have no option. FIL is a dairy farmer, so he never fails to inform me how much he gets for milk for the dairy 17p a litre at the moment - shocking

We have a milkman, hubby has a bottle of full fat delivered on a Friday for the weekend. He says it reminds him of when he was a child xx
