PORTLAND, Maine – Move over pumpkin spice, Oakhurst, northern New England’s leading dairy company and beloved milk brand, today announced the release of a new, limited-edition flavor to celebrate this fall: Maple Milk.
“Maple is a classic fall flavor and since maple syrup is predominantly home-grown right here in northern New England, we thought it was the perfect seasonal variety to add to our flavored milk line up,” says John Bennett, President of Oakhurst Dairy.
Oakhurst’s new Maple Milk is made with 100% pure maple syrup that Oakhurst is sourcing locally from Bascom Family Farms of New Hampshire, which is a leading independent supplier of pure maple syrup. Bascom Family Farms sources from not only its own taps, but also small family farms in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
“We hope both adults and kids will enjoy the pure, natural sweetness of our Maple Milk,” adds Bennett. “It’s delicious on its own as a snack or treat, but it can also be used to make maple lattes or even as a base ingredient to plus-up the maple flavor in your morning pancakes or waffles.”
The flavored whole milk is sold in pints and quarts and can be found throughout northern New England in Hannaford, Market Basket and Walmart stores. Prices may vary depending on location and retailer. Oakhurst Maple Milk is only available for a limited time this fall. For more information, visit oakhurstdairy.com.

Today, Oakhurst remains committed to the health and well-being of its community by contributing 10% of its profits to local organizations that support healthy kids and a healthy environment. The company produces milk and other dairy and juice products from its headquarters in Portland, Maine.
