Food Partnership Program

If you’re on vacation or simply have too much stashed in your fridge, you can respond to our automated text messages and instead have your box sent to a local family in need through Hockanum Valley Food Pantry.

If you’re interested in donating a box every week, you can simply purchase one and select the “donate” option upon signing up. Each box is packed with fresh nutritious products that often do not get to our local food banks. At the end of the year, we’ll provide you with a tax deductible receipt from a non profit organization. (Charitable giving deduction receipts remain for taxpayers who optimize with current tax laws)


Know your milk. We at Oakridge Dairy invite you to come see where it all happens down on the farm.

It All Starts With a Happy Cow

The Modern Milkman, owned and operated by Oakridge Dairy, is changing the face of dairy by giving it to you straight. We, as farmers, have the highest standards for producing milk and each bottle of milk is guaranteed fresh.

  • Homegrown Feed

  • Posh Living

    Our state-of-the-art barns with regulated air temperatures, on top of fresh comfortable bedding, make our cows feel happy and healthy all day long.

  • Staying Refreshed

    Our cows drink water from a well - which is a beneficial natural water that is not treated.

  • We Love Our Cows

    We have been taking care of cows for more than 100 years, providing them with excellent care and ensuring their long-term health.
