Milkmen report surge in business due to pandemic
Milkmen are experiencing a resurgence as Americans retreat into the safety of their homes. In Connecticut, one dairy farm has reinstituted home delivery, after retiring the service eight years ago. In New York, the last milkman in one region reports experiencing a flood of new interest. He has also expanded his offerings to include more than just dairy: Meatballs, ribs, hash browns, and pizza logs are on the menu, too. A similar situation is also unfolding across the pond, The New York Times reports. Before this, use of milk delivery had plummeted in the last few decades: Just 0.4 percent of the product was home-delivered in 2005, according to USDA, the last year the agency reported such data. Who could have predicted this revival? Well, at least one hot guy.
