Long thought gone were the days of white-clad milkmen dropping off fresh dairy in the morning to thirsty customers, but thanks to one local man, this door-to-door service is on its way back.
Matt Marone, via his Westchester Milk, has taken a page out of the past, delivering farm-fresh milk to happy customers in Westchester, the Bronx, and much of Fairfield on a weekly basis. The milk has no pesticides, artificial preservatives, additives or growth hormones. Shortly after starting the business 18 years ago, Marone realized just how much of a demand for fresh dairy there was. He expanded his fleet of trucks, and over nearly two decades, has grown his customer base to more than 350 clients.

Westchester Milk’s products are delivered fresh once a week, including milk, butter, cottage cheese, and sour cream from Byrne Dairy in Montgomery, NY. There is no subscription necessary. After registering on the website, westchestermilk.com, customers are contacted for a delivery. After placing your order, your delivery will be left for you on the desired date, in either a self-supplied cooler, or a $30 galvanized steel box that are available for purchase.
Adding to the appeal is their environmentally conscious recycling practices. After finishing your order, they take back your glass bottles to be cleaned and refilled for future orders.
In addition to milk, Westchester Milk delivers eggs, New York maple syrup, honey, jams, granola, homemade pies, bacon, and steaks, some of which is supplied by the local farms.
