Since Scout turned a year old, his pedia has advised us that he can start drinking fresh milk. The good news is that fresh milk nowadays are no longer difficult to find.
I remember during a field trip that I had when I was still in school (not so long ago in the time-space warp), we went to this dairy farm in Batangas. The owner said that real fresh milk only lasts 3-5 days. Bearing that in mind, I skipped the tetra pack brands all together and had my eye on the ones sold directly from the dairy farm.
It really didn't take long for me to stumble on a solution to my problem. I accidentally saw an ad for Kefseft Dairy Farm. It's a Japanese-owned and operated farm located in Sta. Maria, Bulacan. Locally produced milk using Japanese technology...interesting, right? So, I contacted the the owner, Yamaki-san to inquire about their products. Luckily, they have a regular delivery in my area once a week. So, the minimum purchase amount is just Php250. They only have 1 size for their fresh milk, and that 450ml, which sells for Php80.
Apart from fresh milk, Kefseft also sells yogurt (Php50/cup) and cheese (Php120). They have a buy 4 get a 5th on for free promo on their yogurt. Both my boys at home are yogurt eaters. So, there's no issue in scoffing them up. I'm not a fan of yogurt. This one doesn't taste like the commercially produced ones that are usually sweet and tolerable to me, but I actually like it.
Since my initial order, Yamaki-san sends me an SMS over the weekend to check if I would have order requirements for the following week. It's quite reminiscent of my childhood days with the Magnolia milk man sans the SMS technology. We get our fresh milk delivered to our doorstep. Scout actually has started greeting Yeng, Kefseft's delivery lady.
Kefseft has regular deliveries in Makati, BGC, and Alabang. Minimum purchase order would vary depending on your location. You can find them in Legazpi Market on Sundays too. You may contact Yamaki-san at +63.916.381.3846.
