Thank you for your very early deliveries. I love getting my order before I leave for work in the mornings. Then I know my products are safe inside my home and that they will stay fresh and not bake in the milk box on the porch.

We received our very 1st & 2nd deliveries during snowmegedon 2019. We were so impressed that the deliveries were made and they kept us from having to get to the grocery store! Thank you, Chase!

Hi Chase!

I wanted to say a big THANK YOU for your service as we will be moving out of state on July 11th! Our last delivery will be July 1st. We will definitely miss Smith Brothers products...and impressing many friends and family with having a milkman! Haha! Thank you again very much! I did also call in to notify the company of our relocation to NY.

Our best and many happy milk memories,

Thank you for the awesome milk you deliver to our home! You come so early I had to look up my route and what you look like!!!! LOL

Thank you for delivering our weekly milk and goodies.  We are  latte and mocha drinkers, so we consume a lot of milk.   There is something so satisfying about opening that white box and finding everything there.  I have friends around the country and we share a monthly Zoom call.  Some of them are now looking locally to see if they can find a milkman like we have.  Now that’s a vote of confidence for you Chase!

Thank you, Chase, for your deliveries. It has been nice being able to order without going to stores during COVID-19. My parents started with Smith Brothers  1949-1955!!

Many thanks from the Huennekens family! You've had to go above and beyond the past few months and we appreciate it! Having our 3 adult children all home through the pandemic has made us appreciate your deliveries even more!

Many thanks, Bill, Bridget, Liam, Abby and Ayden

We recently moved to a new location and route driver but wanted to leave a shoutout to Chase for always being awesome! Thankyou for the many years of service, my kids will miss watching for your truck and speedy run across the yard. Best wishes to you.

We are moving but wanted to leave a heartfelt thank you to Chase! You’ve been great! We homeschool so the kids always enjoyed watching the truck pull in and getting a wave. It made my son’s day. Thank you for being a bright spot in our week.
