Milk Not Jails is a brand of dairy products made by New York dairy farmers who are committed to preserving agriculture in rural New York and to dismantling our state’s dysfunctional prison system. Milk Not Jails partners with dairy farmers in New York who sign on to our policy agenda. In exchange for their strategic political support, we market, sell, and distribute their products to urban consumers through our non-profit marketing and distribution company. Meet our farmers.
Milk Not Jails provides dairy and egg shares to Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) sites with distribution in New York City CSA. Members at participating CSAs can purchase shares of milk, half & half, yogurt and/or butter for weekly or bi-monthly deliveries. Milk Not Jails also provides monthly order opportunities for CSA members to purchase cheeses, ice cream and more ala carte throughout the season. Winter is the time when CSAs decide what shares to offer to their members, so check our farm share offerings for 2014 right now. If you or a core member from your CSA group is interested in having Milk Not Jails at your CSA in 2014, contact us at email@example.com or (917) 719-MILK as soon as possible. Not a member of a CSA but still want to participate? You don’t need to be part of an official CSA to receive a Milk Not Jails delivery. Contact us to set-up a Milk Not Jails buying club at your workplace or school.

Senior housing, community drug rehabilitative programs, and other social-services housing make up approximately 43,000 dwellings in NYC. Group meals are often provided in these institutional settings. There are about 9,700 daycares in NYC, most of which serve milk to their students each day. Milk Not Jails wants to provide these important social and housing providers with their weekly dairy purchase needs. Do you know someone in supportive housing? Is there a daycare on your block?
