The Hildebrand Family
Glass bottles are a great insulator. Nothing is better than an ice-cold glass of milk. Our bottles keep milk colder, which makes it last longer, too.
Glass bottles are recyclable and refillable! We collect, wash and refill our glass bottles and often have bottles that come through the system that we originally bottled in 2008. It is estimated that 1 glass bottle saves an average of 64 plastic jugs from the landfill.
Each bottle has a $2.75 deposit that is returned to you once the bottle is returned to the store. Any store that sells Hildebrand products will refund the glass bottle deposit. Of course, we hope you'll swap it for a fresh bottle. We know there are a few bottle hoarders out there... yes we're talking to you, who has 20 bottles in their garage.
Our great grandfather delivered milk door-to-door in glass bottles in Junction City in the 1930's. We feel our vintage bottles give a nod to a simpler time and are a salute to our original founder Arnold Hildebrand.
When deciding to bottle our own milk we knew we wanted to preserve flavor and keep the taste as natural and pure as possible. Glass bottles were the obvious answer. Check out the other benefits to our glass.
We mean it when we say that the "Best Brand is Hildebrand!" Come visit our farm store, or visit one of our amazing retail partners. Cheers!
