The Milkman cometh
Matt Marone and Frank Acosta will deliver a five dollar quart of organic milk in a glass bottle to your door, as long as your door is in Manhattan ($5 delivery charge, $15 minimum order). Acosta and Marone say the steep price Manhattan Milk charges is justified because they contract with Amish farmers for organic, rBST-free milk from free-range cows. They also deliver brand-name organic juice, dairy and eggs at a slightly less steep markup.
Marone, who also owns a milk delivery company in Westchester, plans to expand milkman service to Brooklyn next. Staten Island, go figure, is already getting it from someone else.
