Mass Dairy Board
Massachusetts dairy farmers work hard every day to bring you great tasting, wholesome milk and other dairy products. The majority of family operated dairy farms in Massachusetts are wholesale milk producers. Massachusetts dairy farmers pool their milk with other dairy farmers from across the Bay State. Fresh milk from over 150 Massachusetts dairy farms is picked up on a daily basis and delivered to a local dairy processor. The dairy processor then pasteurizes bottles and delivers the milk to a grocery store near you! Milk sold at retail stores is a regional product which means dairy farmers from across New England contribute to the milk we drink here in Massachusetts and vice versa.
