One of the last of which I have heard.....a local dairy that still made daily home deliveries of fresh milk until about a year ago. The dairy ceased operation when the grandson of the founder passed 90. He and the great-grandson, well over 60, wanted to retire, and the great-great grandson decided he didn't want to keep it going.

Despite the run-down exterior, the dairy had modern processing equipment in this building and produced the best tasting milk I've ever enjoyed, not to mention how nice it was to have it delivered in glass jugs to your doorstep

In the morning going to work, or on the way home in the afternoon, I would have to stop and wait while old Mr. Humphrey, in his golf cart,drove the cattle from the pasture across the highway to the milking barn. Although I get to work a little faster, it's a little piece of Americana I miss.

That's a touching story you conveyed accompanying your pics. I love the spirit of family run business basing on sincerity and a great deal of humanity as well!! ...especially if it's a dairy : ) Well, I'd even venture to take over that place if I lived around there, since it already hasgentleman customers such as yourself:-)

What a wonderful piece of America you have conveyed here. We too had a dairy has a child I went weekly with my parents to. It has long since been replaced by the good ole plastic jugs of the supermarket.

Our friends in Colorado believe it or not, still enjoy home delivery of their milk in glass bottles......go figure.

Thanks for sharing Trojansoc.

Mandy.

Good shots! When I was growing up we had milk delivered in Dallas until about 1960 so having it until a year ago is amazing.
