WEST VALLEY CITY — To many, milkmen have long been considered a thing of the past. But one Utah business has made millions of home milk deliveries since April 1880, and continued those deliveries well into the 21st century.

However, Winder Dairy announced Friday in a news release that the company will no longer make home deliveries and its product can instead be found in dozens of grocery stores across the Beehive State.

The decision goes into effect July 5, and the change comes as the most recent innovation in a long line of the company's transition into a modern business approach.

“There have been many changes through the years and we’ve continually adapted, since my great-great-great grandfather John R. Winder began selling milk,” said part-owner and sixth generation family member Mike Winder in the release. “Now that we are two decades into the Twenty First Century, we must adapt once more."

According to the news release, Winder Farms milk was awarded “Best Milk in the World” at the 2016 World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin.

The award-winning milk will now be available in Dan’s, Dick’s, Fresh Market, Harmons, Lee’s Market, Macey’s, Ridley’s, Smith’s, Sprout’s, Target, The Store, Whole Foods, Winegars and more, the release stated.

“Frankly, this change is difficult for all of us. It is indeed an end of an era,” Winder said. “Yet, on behalf of the entire Winder Farms family, we are thrilled that we will be able to continue to provide the freshest, best-tasting dairy products through your favorite grocery stores for decades to come.”
