Return of the Milkman

Manhattan Milk

Manhattan Milk is a “truck to table” milk delivery service born in 2007 around the idea of bringing the nostalgia of the milkman back and putting the customer first. Manhattan milk delivers everything from milk and eggs to local fruits and vegetables, to their own healthy snack line. They process their milk as little as allowable (low-temperature vat pasteurization) to keep the important enzymes and “good” bacteria there to work for customers. The milk is held at 145 degrees for 30 minutes and then cooled as quickly as possible. This gives milk (the kind many of us remember as kids) the smooth, sweet taste of yesteryear and preserves the naturally occurring enzymes that help your body to easily digest it. Their milk is also unhomogenized, a rare find these days and a return to nostalgia when a thick layer of cream rose to the top of each bottle. For more info, visit
