Did you know milk trucks were made in Michigan?

Got milk? Well, back in the day, milk trucks drove door-to-door delivering the all important staple to your home.

Twin Pines, Sealtest, Borden’s, Washtenaw Dairy and Guernsey Farm are just a few of the companies that sent hardy little delivery trucks out every day, serving up home delivery of milk, cream, eggs and cheese.

Those snub-nosed delivery trucks have deep roots in Detroit.

Writer George Bulanda looked into the history of the milk trucks for his story in the current issue of Hour Detroit Magazine.
