Cohort Sighting: Divco Still Hauling Milk?


It looks like it, backed to that open door. On second thought, it’s a bit off to the side, and it’s hard to imagine a Divco still in service. Johnh875 posted this shot at the Cohort, and since there’s some Straus Creamery butter in our fridge, I decided to do a bit of googling. They’re in Petaluma, CA., and the first organically-certified dairy in the West. Their butter is very good. And they have good taste in milk trucks.

The Divco story needs to be told here sometime. In the past, when milk was largely delivered directly to one’s house, Divco curbside milk delivery trucks were ubiquitous.  Now they’re a hot collectable.
