Stewart’s Shops has the best milk in New York, according to the Cornell University Department of Food Science.

The Milk Quality Improvement Program named Stewart’s milk and chocolate milk the best tasting in the state, during a virtual awards ceremony for its annual fluid milk competition on Aug. 25.

“This Best Milk award is a testament to our hard-working dairy farmers and our experience in the dairy industry. Our customers can feel good about buying their milk and ice cream from Stewart’s Shops knowing that they are supporting local dairy farmers. We are so proud to take top honors in both the milk and chocolate milk categories,” said Gary Dake, president of Stewart’s Shops.

Stewart’s gets its raw milk from 23 local dairy farmers, picking it up daily and processing it and bottling it in their Greenfield plant.

Another local dairy producer, Stoltzfus Family Dairy in Vernon Center, won the flavored-milk category for its pasteurized, non-homogenized mocha and latte “cream line” milk.
