Does The Milkman Still Deliver?


Rockview Farms

Keeping true to the title of my blog SO, I am always trying to find ways to keep daily life simple... And running to the store a few times a week to pick up milk, bread, eggs and yogurt does not qualify as simple. However, having these items delivered weekly to my front door is the true definition of simplicity. I know this sounds so 1950's, but it is true. Rockview Farms delivers not only farm fresh dairy products, but other local favorites including Tanaka Farms Produce and Picket Lane Bakery Goods.

I do not know of any warehouse store or chain that can deliver you BSF free milk to your doorsteps within 48 hours after milking, and it truly tastes better. For my friends that do not live in Southern California, I know there are local dairies in the San Fransisco and Central Coast areas that also provide home delivery service.

Beside the quality of the Rockview products the family owned and operated business is a simple and friendly organization. To start delivery just log onto or call (714) 543-0676. Unlike the crazy phone companies there are no ridiculous contracts to sign, just your order to get started, and you can easily stop service at any time. And, unlike national pizza companies or flower companies there are no additional delivery charges. Need to make changes to your order? Just leave the milkman a note. That's right no calling 800 numbers and sitting on hold for hours, no standing in additional lines, or dealing with clueless store managers.
As for friendly customer service, I told the owner,Mr. Pastor, that I was going to mention Rockview in my blog. He was so pleased that I received complementary orange juice with my next delivery. Really, who gives products away during a recession...
