LAKEWOOD, Colo. - The 113-year-old Morning Fresh Dairy Farm didn't even use barcodes on its bottles when a Whole Foods Market in Fort Collins, Colo. asked about offering the dairy's all-natural milk.


Dairy general manager Matt Lucas began bringing the glass bottles himself from the Morning Fresh farm in Bellevue, Colo., 60 miles north of Denver. Until then, Morning Fresh had long made its name on home deliveries.

Since his Whole Foods deliveries began in 2004, Lucas estimated, his dairy's sales have increased 20 percent. Morning Fresh now sells at least 1,000 gallons a week to supply a Whole Foods distribution center serving 10 stores.

"It's a breath of fresh air to get involved with a group like that. They were so excited to get our product in their stores," Lucas said.

It doesn't make sense to pay money to buy some foods from China when our local growers make the same thing and the shipping costs is just added onto it plus stores have more control... One has know control over China

and with gas and oil getting more expensive the shift of buying home is going to make more sense
