So I have been buying milk in glass jars to avoid the plastic containers. However there is no labelling except the cap colors. I usually buy the blue capped bottles. However recently a red and green capped have appeared on the shelves. I have no idea what those two are… I think the red cap is whole milk but the green capped milk seems to be more yellow in color. The company is Ronnybrook dairy, the milk that is commonly sold at whole foods. Any ideas on what they are?
Is there fine print on the caps themselves? That's how they're labeled around here. Labeling the bottles would make it more difficult to re-use them, since you'd have to either clean off sticky labels or sort the skim milk containers from the whole milk containers. I'd ask a store employee if you can't crack the code, but generally red is whole milk, blue is 2%, green is skim, yellow is buttermilk. Our east coast brand is Trickling Springs.
Out here, Straus milk containers have a detachable paper collar that tells you what kind of milk it is.
you can call or email them. brookford farm. don't worry, i go there every week, so i'll find out soon, as long as i can remember to ask when i'm there.
while are visiting brookford farm's site, read a little about them, they are fascinating (they are very much like the greenhorn people). i actually got to witness some huge drama surrounding them and farm relocation this past weekend. luckily they won, but the twist of the story is that stonyfield's ceo had to front them the cash, out of his personal money, not stonyfield's money. so now my local, awesome, independent farm, is 3 degrees of separation from dannon yogurt. but the connections are very weak, and there is no chance for influence unless situations get very dire.
