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 farmers need to know that consumers care about criminal justice reform. You can prove this to them by organizing your co-workers, classmates or community into a buying club to purchase weekly subscriptions of milk, half & half, yogurt and/or butter. We will deliver the products directly to your organization so long as you meet our minimum order. Participating buying clubs will also offer monthly special orders to their members of cheeses, ice cream and more! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (917) 719-MILK for more information and to schedule a Milk Not Jails presentation with your group.
