Farm Fresh Milk Products

Late post: I’ve been looking for kesong puti and locally-produced mozzarella for a while now until I discovered UPLB’s Fresh Milk Distributor – Commonwealth QC on Facebook.

They’ve been selling a lot of milk products such as whole milk, choco milk, coffee milk, low-fat plain yogurt, flavored yogurt (peach mango, strawberry, blueberry), and pastillas candy.

I ordered one each of kesong puti, mozzarella, peach mango yogurt, and pastillas candy. I bought them in February and have yet to make a second order soon.

The seller is so accommodating and thoroughly explains how to store the milk products properly. Since the milk and other dairy products are fresh, have no preservatives, and with shorter shelflife. Proper storage is a must to maximize its shelf life.

I’m glad I discovered these locally-sourced products. The products taste so much better than I expected. Kudos to the sellers and distributors for helping our local farmers and the industry thrive.
