Our Milk

Our Milk is Fresh & Local

Our milk comes straight from local, Pacific Northwest dairy farms to your home in just 24-48 hours. We pasteurize (never ultra-pasteurize!) and process milk daily, using the most rigorous quality standards. Store bought milk has likely spent days at processing facilities, on the road, and at various distribution points before making it to the grocery shelf. Home delivery is a lot of fun. It’s also the best way to get farm-fresh milk to you and your family.

Please note: we are committed to the production of high quality dairy products that are safe for consumption. Since raw milk is unpasteurized, it has a much higher likelihood of carrying food-borne pathogens. As such, we do not sell raw milk.

Our Organic Milk

Our organic dairy products come from cows that are pasture raised and grass fed, with a supplemental diet of certified organic grain feed. The price difference between conventional and organic dairy is due to the cost differences in organic farming and animal husbandry practices, as well as the additional certification requirements. A fun-fact about organic dairy: some people can identify taste differences depending on where the cows have grazed. Give it a try and see if you can!

rBST? No Way!

All of our milk comes from local dairy farms that have banned the use of artificial (recombinant) growth hormones (rBST). Our milk is, and has always been, rBST free.

Milk Cartons

Cardboard cartons are the best packaging for fresh, high quality milk. Cartons protect milk from harmful exterior light, and also retain the temperature better than plastic or glass. Our milk cartons are recyclable, as well as compostable. Using cardboard is the best material for packaging milk, and it's the right decision for the environment.

Home Delivery

Our Porch Boxes

When you start home delivery with us, your first order will include a temperature-controlled Smith Brothers Farms porch box. Our porch boxes are designed to fit most orders, with room to spare when you want to add something special. Your milkman will place the porch box in an ideal location on your first delivery. If you need to move your porch box to a different location, contact us to we can notify your milkman. We'll pick up your porch box if you move or cancel your service. Please note: if we are not able to pick up your porch box or if it is damaged, you may be charged $35.

Free Delivery

There are no service fees with Smith Brothers Farms. Many home delivery services charge recurring fees or have expensive annual contracts. We do business a little differently. We live in the neighborhoods we serve and, to us, recurring fees and service contracts just don’t seem neighborly.

Smith Brothers Farms home delivery is FREE for orders of $10 or more. If your order total is less than $10, there is a small delivery charge of $1.29. With so many great products, we’re confident you can fill up your porch box!

Order & Delivery Details

When you start service, you create a standing order. Your standing order is what we’ll deliver to your porch box every week. You must have at least 1 item in your standing order. Your standing order can include items for weekly or every-other-week delivery. 

You can change your next delivery and standing order directly through our website. You can add or remove items, change item quantities or skip an upcoming delivery. 

Home delivery is once a week, Monday-Friday. The day and time of your delivery depends on where you live and when your milkman is in your neighborhood. While we cannot guarantee a certain delivery time, your milkman will generally deliver your order at around the same time each week.

We deliver on all weekday holidays, except Thanksgiving day and Christmas day.

Skips, Holds and Moves

Set up a delivery skip when you do not need an order on a scheduled delivery day. Go to Manage Delivery Skips to set up a skip. 

We can put your account on hold if you need to stop deliveries for an extended period. Send an email to getmilk@smithbrothersfarms.com for assistance.

Are you moving? Send an email to getmilk@smithbrothersfarms.com for assistance. We can (hopefully) set you up at your new address. If not, we will cancel your account and pick up the porch box after your last delivery.
