 Drinking milk

TO THE EDITOR: As a New York dairy farmer who loves reading Gordie Little’s column, I was disappointed to read the June 22 column on “Trying Different Milk a Piece of Cake.”

I write this on behalf of all proud dairy farmers from the North Country, where no almond trees grow.

Gordie, we love you, but you need to put that almond juice down and drink the real thing; your neighbors and friends who milk the cows every day are counting on you.

If you like the taste of almond juice — It’s most certainly not accurate to call it “milk” — okay, but we hope you know you’re paying up to 50 percent more for that stuff and getting less protein, compared to real, wholesome, nutritious milk.

Knowing that June is Dairy Month, I hope that your support of the dairy industry could be as real and as wholesome.

Also, now that strawberry season is here, Gordie, please, keep the whipped cream “real.”
