State of Origin
Where is Your Milk From?
Have you ever gone to the grocery store and wondered what the numbers on your milk jug mean?
The first two numbers range from 0-56, telling you what state the milk is from, #36 is New York. The series after the dash tells you the dairy farm it came from.
From the image to the left, the 36 means it came from NY, and 8185 means that is came from Garelick Farms LLC, which is located in Rensselaer County.

This Local Food Guide was produced as a public service with funding from the sponsors listed here.
The farms and businesses in this guide have assured us that they sell food they have raised themselves or food they have produced themselves using largely local ingredients.
In addition to their own food, these farms and businesses may also sell food that is not locally grown or produced. When shopping for local food, feel free to ask, "Did you grow this yourself?"
