Sponsored: Where does Laura Lynn milk come from?
QUESTION: Where does Ingles Laura Lynn milk come from?
ANSWER: Most (80%) of the dairy farmers who supply Ingles Markets with Laura Lynn milk live within about 100-150 miles of Asheville. These dairy farms generally have about 100-200 cows and are family owned like English Farm in Marion NC and Ramsey Dairy Farm in Fairview.
Milk is trucked from farms daily to our milk processing plant (MILKCO) in West Asheville. This generally means that it is only about 48 hours after those cows are milked that you can buy it at Ingles. Ingles Markets is one of only a few supermarkets that operates its own milk processing plant! MILKCO also bottles milk and other beverages for other supermarkets, food service and universities. If you are drinking another brand of milk you can easily look up where your milk is from: http://whereismymilkfrom.com
