Milk home delivery in metro Atlanta is now a thing of the past

It is an end of an era.

This past week marked the end of home delivery of milk products in metro Atlanta.

Preston Born and his partner, Rick Lee, operated the last milk home delivery service in the Atlanta region – serving about 240 customers who had held on to the tradition of yesteryear.

As one of those 240 customers, Born broke the news in a note that was included with my last delivery of milk (and eggs) on Jan. 3.
