I liked their bread too! The prices were never stable so it was hard to budget!

With Winder, 5 gallons x $5 = $25 a week x 52 weeks = $1,300 a year. The store saves me $780 a year on milk alone!! If you want to add in the $3 delivery charge, that's another $156 a year for a total of $936!! What could you do with $1,000? I could feed my family for 5 months!!! I could take my family to Disneyland for 5 days!!! Our last trip was less than that! I will buy cheap milk and save $1,000 a year thank you very much!
I used to do Winder also, and I also now buy 5-8 gallons of milk a week (3 teenage boys, need I say more?) Their milk is so overpriced I choke just thinking about buying it. The outside of the milk jugs were always FILTHY... it was disgusting. Plus I thought they were hard to pour and my kids kept spilling them...like pouring liquid gold on the counter. And finally, I had the delivery man deliver my milk for the morning several times the night before and a couple of times I went out there and there was NOTHING until late in the morning. My neighbor was doing Winder up until a month or so ago when she quit after the delivery man left her milk out on her porch (not in the cooler, which had been moved but he didn't even look for it) OVERNIGHT in the middle of summer... she went out to get it and it was WARM. Eww...

Never again... I don't care of their milk tastes like the best milk in the world... I'd rather go milkless.

If you look back in this thread and see that you can get raw milk from Johnny's dairy in West Haven. I've been using that to make my cheese and other creamery items. It's in another thread:

Also I convinced Rosehill to start delivering to my house so you may be able to convince them to go a little further and deliver to yours.

I'm excited. They will only deliver once a week to me and not on Thursday when a few other things are available but hey all my calling finally paid off.

Thank you! I had no idea you could get raw milk there. That is great news!

You can't buy it at the actual store you have to go to the farm but it is available.

We did Winder Dairy for a few weeks back in the mid-90's. Never again.

As a side note, KSL did a story tonight that Winder Dairy Chocolate Milk was named "best chocolate milk in the Intermountain West" for whatever that's worth.

Default what works for me

My dh loves Winder dairy milk, but the cost was too much for me. We found that costco milk was just as good to us.

Its a cold pasteurazation process.. The millk is only heated for roughly 17 seconds then cooled down immediately. You can taste the difference and quality in the milk. Having worked for Albies for close to a quarter of a century you would be shocked at what ALL GROCERY CHAINS not just Albies do to their products and what they hide from their customers.. Made me sick!!
