I typed in the numbers on our gallon of milk from the fridge and sure enough - it's from Spokane. It even shows what other products are made at the Darigold plant in Spokane. I sure wish we had this available two year's ago when it took the skills of an investigative reporter to source our milk.
Now let me try it with Albertson's butter...Darnit! It's from Tulare, CA.
OK, this is getting interesting. What other dairy products do I have in the house?
Challenge Butter. Let's try this one. Foiled again! Greenwood Wisconsin. We have really fallen off the local wagon. Let's pause for a sentimental moment to remember that year where we made our own butter from local cow milk.
OK, what's next? Albertsons light yogurt, and the snazzy new web app saaaays - Fullerton, CA, right next to Disneyland. The carbon footprint of my fridge is really feeling self conscious at this point.
In case you're wondering, it's true, I am actually live blogging all ofthe dairy in my refrigerator. I know it's riveting stuff, so let's move on to the Darigold Sour Cream and Cottage Cheese. - Seattle. That's better.
Western Family Half & Half, - Portland Oregon. I can live with that.
Mountain High Yogurt - Engelwood, CO. They don't call it Mountain High for nothing.
Doesn't appear to work with ice cream, cheese or other dairy products.
It's a fair question at this point to ask if maybe I don't have better things to do on a Monday night; like say finishing a dissertation or writing a book. I hear that and I promise, I'm about to get productive, but let me conclude by highly recommending this "Where's My Milk From?" site for those looking for ways to avoid doing things like finishing a dissertation or writing a book.
