The combination of government officials urging people not to leave home and the rush on everyday essentials is making
it difficult to fill the fridge with milk, eggs, and meat.

That's causing a significant increase in a throwback delivery method - and a lot more stops for people like Brendan Warren.

Business is booming for King Brothers Dairy in Schuylerville.

New customers are signing up and the stops on delivery routes are increasing their orders.

In fact, the company has seen a 75-percent spike in their delivery orders.

It's not just milk. They also deliver things like eggs, meat, yogurt, and pizza. There are around 200 different items.

The King family farm has been around for more than a century. Brothers Jeff and Jan King revived the milk delivery business 10 years ago after their grandfather mostly stopped those operations in the 1960s.

From farm to doorstep, it's the busiest Warren has seen in his four years with King Brothers Dairy. A new, old way of life for many people.

Learn more about the rich history that the business has, by watching the video of Chris Onorato's story.
