What You'll Get
Milkmen were once regarded as key members of communities, providing households with milk that could be dried into flakes and used as snow for family reenactments of Fargo. Carry on an American tradition with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of groceries delivered to your door from Winder Farms. This Groupon also waives a $15 sign-up fee and $3 delivery fee (a $68 total value). Groceries cannot be delivered to apartments.
Winder Farms offers more than 150 farm-fresh products delivered doorside in a cooler box. All-natural milk, free of artificial growth hormones or antibiotics and housed in half-gallon polycarbonate bottles ($2.99) or classic glass milk jugs ($3.49), arrives on stoops five to six days sooner than grocery-store milk finds its home under the nutrient-zapping fluorescent light of dairy cases. Design a dinner or a built-to-scale model of the Parthenon from skinless, boneless, chicken (2 lbs. organic $16.49, all-natural $11.49). Or let Winder Farms prep ravioli (12 oz. cheese $4.49, shrimp $6.99) or chicken enchiladas with rice and beans bathed in mole sauce (two for $5.99). Freshly squeezed juice (half-gallon $4.49–$5.59) can be soaked up with white bread (20 oz. $3.19) or molasses wheat bread ($3.79).
All deliveries are made overnight and guaranteed by 8 a.m., before stomachs start to yelp like a pony imitating a dog for an order of old-fashioned pancake mix ($3.49) and two pounds of cut fruit ($6.99). Schedule a recurring order to remove "buy eggs" (conventional $2.69, organic $4.69) from the to-do list permanently tattooed on your upper back.
Though few reviews are available, Winder Farms, formerly known as Winder Dairy, received a four-star average from six Insider Pagers:
- Winder Dairy has the best skim milk! I really enjoy having milk, eggs, butter, cheese and even apples and grapes delivered to my home. – Shaunna F.
- When the delivery guy came to our door and gave us some free samples, we were totally hooked! Their homemade bread is yummy and cheaper than you would find it it in a grocery store! Their orange juice is also really good. – Jason White

About Winder Farms
In 1916, Winder Dairy still delivered its bottles of milk by horse and wagon—but only because founder John R. Winder found the quadruped "more efficient" than the Model T delivery truck brought in the year before. Today, under the new moniker Winder Farms, fifth- and sixth-generation Winders uphold their family's reputation for speed, delivering cooler boxes packed with more than 300 farm-fresh products to customers' doorsteps each night. All-natural milk⎯free of artificial growth hormones or antibiotics and housed in classic glass milk jugs⎯takes 24 to 36 hours to travel from farm to doorstep, and natural and organic skinless and boneless chicken also zips to grills and skillets.
All deliveries are made overnight and guaranteed by 8 a.m. Customers can select their desired goods online, and recurring orders grant the freedom to remove "buy eggs" from the to-do list permanently tattooed on your upper back. Winder Farms also sells wholesale quantities of its milk, juice, and bakery items, as well as complete meals such as ravioli and enchiladas.
