Portland, Maine-based Oakhurst Dairy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Kansas City, Kan.-based Dairy Farmers of America, said it released a new limited-edition flavor to celebrate fall: Maple milk.
“Maple is a classic fall flavor, and since maple syrup is predominantly home-grown right here in northern New England, we thought it was the perfect seasonal variety to add to our flavored milk lineup,” said John Bennett, president of Oakhurst Dairy.
Oakhurst said the Maple milk is made with 100% pure maple syrup that the company is sourcing locally from Bascom Family Farms of New Hampshire. Bascom Family Farms sources from not only its own taps, but also small family farms in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
“We hope both adults and kids will enjoy the pure, natural sweetness of our Maple milk,” added Bennett. “It’s delicious on its own as a snack or treat, but it can also be used to make maple lattes or even as a base ingredient to plus-up the maple flavor in your morning pancakes or waffles.”
The flavored whole milk is sold in pints and quarts and can be found throughout northern New England in Hannaford, Market Basket and Walmart stores. Prices may vary depending on location and retailer. Oakhurst said Maple milk is available for only a limited time this fall.
