milknotjails1Milk 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.

crate-milk-eggsMilk 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.
