The early bird catches the worm is an old proverb meaning something along the lines of being the first to rise does has it’s advantages. That holds true here as there are some things on the island like Bacon Egg Johnny cakes from Ruby’s that you have to get there early for or you will not get one.
On Tuesdays, the San Pedro version of the proverb above would be the early bird gets the fresh milk and cream. If you are willing to be an early bird and set your alarm, you will get the good stuff at $12:00 a gal and the super fresh cream for $2.50 a bag.
After our first trip with a departure time of 4:30 am based on Arne’s recommendation, Barb and I decided that leaving at 5:00am would get us to the lagoon in enough time to get milk and Joe came to check it out the second time around. They only had one cooler last week and we both agreed it would not take much for a restaurant or baker to come in and buy them out of stock on one swoop.
Here are 3 reviews on our Belize farm fresh milk.
- The Milk was too thick for Paul reminded him of bad childhood experiences drinking beef cow milk, he became Lala light boxed milk boy since moving to Belize.
- Cowboy Doug drank it right out of the jug and said it reminded him of Montana farm days.
- Barb “Loved it! Reminds me of the fresh dairies that we used to get fresh milk from in Germany! Creamy, rich and delicious! I made soups with it, pudding and more! I’m in love! Will go back tomorrow am!”
