I wish trucks like this one were still cruising the town roads, delivering fresh dairy products. In what seems like another lifetime, Secret Agent Farmer Man and I were newlyweds living in Alabama. We rented a small, old house on a tree lined street. Early each morning, as he left for his Army job and I for college classes, a milk truck was leaving glass bottles of fresh milk on porches all along our street.
There is somewhat of a revival of fresh, organic products that are available for delivery. If you live in the Asheville area, this company is in the delivery business. In my small town area fresh products are available in a more informal way. Friends and farmers are usually ready to sell meats and vegetables, with Amish farmers providing butter, eggs, and cheese. Though, fresh milk is a rarity.
