Products We Do Not Offer
- Milk: All milk is highly controlled by the Dairy Farmers of Ontario (formerly Milk Board). The milk from local dairy farms is shipped to a processing plant and combined with milk from all over Southern Ontario. It is impossible to say that the milk from Plant A is all from within 100 miles. What we do know is that it is expensive to ship milk long distances so that encourages local milk to go to local processors. If someone can tell me which processing plant is nearest KW, I'll try to buy their milk at the store. I will not be offering milk.
