I think milk is possibly one of the best beverages on earth. I’m sure there would be plenty of dairy farmers that would back me up on that. I also believe if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Not everyone has that feeling though, at least with regards to milk it isn’t.
It was on this date in 1879 that milk was sold in glass bottles for the first time. Before that milk was poured into whatever jugs, pails or other containers that the customers had. The whole process wasn’t very sanitary so some dairies began offering milk in glass fruit jars.
