Maine dairy farmers work every day, year round. Milk from Maine dairy farms can be purchased directly at some farm stores, specialty shops, and farmers’ markets.

Also look for Maine-produced milk in the supermarket dairy aisle. You can find out where the milk in a commercially packaged carton came from by looking at the code. Dairy product packages have number codes that tell the state (first two numbers) where they were processed; the rest tells the processing plant. Codes for New England states are Maine, 23; N.H., 33; Mass., 25; Conn., 09; R.I., 44; Vt., 50. By entering the complete code on the milk carton here you can also learn where the milk was processed.
