Speaking of milk...

The last few months we have been having our milk delivered right to our front door. I have to say that I am loving every minute of it. How cool is it to have a milk carrier drop off fresh milk in the morning right in time for breakfast.

The Oberweis Dairy milk comes in 1/2 gallon glass jars and they leave it right on your front porch in a dairy box. (It appears to be mostly like a cooler.) The first delivery you get you pay a one time fee for the dairy box and they leave it chock full of whatever you have ordered. The dairy box is yours to keep after that. You simply rinse out your milk jugs as you use them and put them in the milk crate (that they supply) and set the milk crate and your dairy box outside and the next time they fill it all up again!

They normally deliver once a week, but they have it nicely set up online so you can adjust your deliveries and change your orders. As long as you do it by 10pm the night before your delivery day you can add items or take them off as you like.

We like the fact that the milk and some of their other products are hormone and antibiotic free. This enables us to give our family great, healthy products without having to pay the premium price for certified organic.

One of the neat things I think is that every once in a while they will leave free samples in your box so that you can try out different products. I have to say that a couple of our favorite things are the fantastic chocolate milk and I love the fresh butter quarters.

Thanks to Oberweis Dairy for helping me offer my family high quality, healthy products to eat.

How neat! I've been buying organic milk and I really love it. I'll have to look into Oberweis.

Awesome! I was leaning toward setting it up this morning, and now I am totally doing it. Thanks for this cool review. And I'm always happy to find another local blogger!
