Though the number has declined slightly in the past few years, there are more than 37,468 dairy farms in the United States, 95 percent of which are family-owned-and-operated. That amounts to approximately 9.31 million dairy cows in the United States! Today’s dairy farmers strive to make their farms and communities sustainable for the future. Environmentally friendly efforts involve water conservation, waste management, protection of air quality, and reduced use of conventional pesticides. And now there is recyclable milk bottles.
Milk has always been considered Mother Nature’s most perfect, natural and nutritious food source. That’s why forward-thinking families like Arizona’s local Danzeisen Dairy are repositioning themselves to match consumer trends and tastes with not only standard white milk choices, but also flavored milk such as Chocolate, Strawberry, Arizona Orange, Root Beer, and Cold Brew Coffee milk.
Starting with National Dairy Month in June and every month throughout the year, support your local dairy farmers. The next time you’re in the dairy section of your local grocer, be sure to look for the Danzeisen Dairy glass, recyclable milk bottle. Save those bottles and return to the grocer to receive your $2.00 deposit or apply it to your next purchase of Danzeisen Dairy milk. If you’re in the neighborhood or looking for a fun outing, stop in at the Danzeisen Dairy Creamery at 6024 W. Southern Avenue in Laveen to pick up your milk directly from the creamery – the Danzeisen Dairy family welcomes you!
