Shop Local – Retailers York


Philip is a milkman.. but in reality he’s offering so much more than that! He’s also passionate about high quality products and reducing plastic waste. As part of the Free Range Dairy Network, he was the first Milk Delivery service in Yorkshire to change to 100% Free Range Milk and still the only one in York. All his milk comes from small, family run farms in the Yorkshire Dales.

As well as free range milk he delivers free range eggs, fresh orange juice in glass bottles, a selection of cheeses, premium quality butter and a large selection of longley farm products including cottage cheese and yoghurts.

Delivering to all areas in York with the exception of Copmanthorpe. Empty bottles are collected, returned to the dairy and reused.
