The Milkman Is Back: Fresh Milk Delivery in Delray Beach

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.

Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
