Milk offers many proven health benefits. For many Americans, it’s a daily part of a healthy diet. Clover Farms offers a quality milk brand made in the dairy country of Pennsylvania. We have a long history of producing milk with a great taste, assured freshness, and absolute safety.
Who is Clover Farms?
In Reading, PA, in 1937, a small dairy farm named Clover Farms began producing and selling milk with eight employees delivering 300 quarts of milk locally per day. Today, that same operation has grown to be the largest in the state, with partnering operations with over 170 family dairy farms to reach production demands.
Clover Farms has also extended the beverages and products we produce. Milk, fruit juices, fruit drinks, additional dairy products, Icy Tea products, and bottled spring water are all within our product catalog. We provide private label distribution as well for customers in Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, NYC and Long Island, Maryland, and Delaware.

The Flexibility of Milk
When you feel as though your diet could use some improvement, finding ingredients that can be incorporated easily into your diet is key. Milk is nutritious and getting enough of it doesn’t have to be difficult. You can use milk to enhance oatmeal, coffee, soup, smoothies, baked goods, and other foods.
The Protein Impact
One cup of milk contains 8 grams of protein! Protein is an essential element for building muscles and remaining healthy and, by choosing milk, you get a protein that has every essential amino acid.
Often milk is considered a kid’s drink, but in reality, milk is great for all ages. Athletes will find that milk prevents soreness, builds muscle, and promotes fast workout recovery, and older people enjoy milk as a way to promote continued mobility, muscle retention, and bone health.
Milk Enhances Bone Health
Milk is commonly known to be healthy to bones, which is why parents should make sure that children consume enough milk every day. However, bone health isn’t only a problem during youth. Everyone needs to get enough calcium and protein, Vitamin D, phosphorus, and magnesium, and milk can provide these nutrients to help avoid loss of bone strength during aging.
Milk Aids in Maintaining a Healthy Weight
Drinking milk has been linked to a healthy weight in several studies. This may be because the protein in the beverage creates a sense of fullness. Other reasons include the conjugated linoleic acid which is thought to enhance the breakdown of fat and stop the creation of it.
Clover Farms is familiar with the proven health benefits of milk, and we strive to secure these benefits and add to them. If you’re interested in carrying our wholesome, healthy, quality milk, call (610) 921-9111 today.
