The Art and Value of Milk

This week we made a couple of changes to the price of milk. First, we removed the bottle deposit from the Strafford milk price you see on the website. Deposits will now be displayed along with your order totals as a separate item. Second, we made a small increase in the price of the milk for both Strafford and Kimball Brook.

Since the price of milk is so skewed in the overall grocery marketplace, we wanted to give you some further background. Even with this new price increase, we are still selling milk and some other dairy products below the margin needed to cover costs of shipping, packing and handling.
