Last month I wrote a popular post about how we’ve made an effort to simplify our food choices and buy most of our fresh food from local farmers and suppliers. One of my favorite changes is our weekly visit from Smith Brothers Farms and our milkman, Josh. Four generations of Smith Brothers have farmed in the Kent valley south of Seattle since 1920 and while their website proudly promises “farm to fridge milk in 48 hours” they have expanded their delivery menu to include a variety of locally produced dairy items along with bread, coffee, and seasonal specialty offers. My typical order includes milk and eggs as well as sandwich bread from a Seattle bakery, peanut butter from Kingston, Blackberry Jam from Vashon Island, and breakfast cookies from Bellingham. If I forget to add or subtract from my standing order online the day before I simply leave a note in the box and Josh fills our request from his truck. We love Smith Brothers!
