Dillon's, Getting Local in the Dairy Department!

 Pasteurized milk originating 112 miles from Wichita!

Last week, while shopping at Dillon's, I discovered they've added a local milk to their supply!  Hildebrand Farms Dairy, near junction City, KS, provides half gallons of skim, 2%, whole, creamline and chocolate milk.  (They also have other flavors, Root Beer anyone?) According to the package, they've had their dairy since 1930 and raise most of their own feed on their 2,000 acre farm.  The milk comes in a glass bottle, so there is a deposit ($2.something)  that you receive back when you return the bottle to the store.  I love it...local milk and no trash to go to the landfill or plastic to recycle.   

Is the milk available at your local Dillon's??  Click here to find out.

  1. Love these glass bottles.. It is what I use for my goat milk. It worth the $2.00 LOL... Hope you are having lots of luck with your garden.


    Quick question... do you know of any family co-ops? I have looked all over the internet and I can't find one in KS. Let alone Wichita.. Would really be interested in this if you know of one or we could get one together!

  2. Hi Rachel -

    Yes, the glass bottles are very cute. Only drawback is that light affects the riboflavin in the milk, so it's important to get whole grains and other foods high in the nutrient.

    The only Coop I know of is the Wichita Food Coop, but last I had heard it's not actually in operation, I think. Here's the link: http://www.wichitafood.coop/ Norm Oeding (see the Wichita Area Producers List for contact info, beef in Newton) would be the best that I know of to tell you what's going on with that coop.

  4. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on
    various websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to
    another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.

    net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!
