A big advance for local waste reduction and yummy fresh milk...

Mornington Superette, 90 Mills Road and Kingston Foodmarket, 46 Quebec Street, have recently been added to the list of outlets now stocking Eketahuna Country Meats fresh milk in returnable reusable glass bottles.

You can take in your empty clean bottles and purchase milk using swap-a-bottle and you can also purchase the milk and pay for the bottle deposit to get you started.

Eketahuna Country Meats also delivers once per week on a Wednesday night to our community. If you like fresh milk in glass bottles delivered, we now have the option to top up in the week locally too.
