More about this item

 

We have here a Vintage Metal Dairy Farm Milk Container. This Milk Can is 40 LIQ QTS, or 10 gallons. Read's; United Farmers of New England Boston 1954 which is stamped on the side.

This can is in very nice shape, no rust, dents or holes. The can is a 10 gallon size. Approximate measurements are 24" tall X 13" across the bottom.

Back in the day, the dairy farmer would fill the milk in the can, then the truck would pick up the can...& take it to the Hood Milk Co.  Plant.

This can is from an Early 1800's Farm in the NEK, Vermont.

All these 10 gallon metal mlik cans are very heavy, and solid.

Our cans are the real thing. They are steel, not tin. Very Heavy.
