The Milkman Returns — This Time, with Baby Food

“There are a lot of advocates for change in the way this country eats,” Lauren Utvich tell us, “but surprisingly little innovation in food and nutrition for those who need it most”—that is, babies. So she and Marshall Louis Reaves, Greenpoint residents, started Farm to Baby, which makes the “best-ever food for babies, a fresh product made from local produce that tastes like real food—because it is,” then delivers it fresh throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan twice a week, like a modern-day spin on the milk-man model. Unlike other baby-food producers, Farm to Baby avoids fillers, binders, and preservatives; it also doesn’t sterilize the food with heat, which destroys vitamins. “Our food is truly fresh, which is what parents want,” Utvich adds. “We know parents are smart enough to see through the deceptive marketing of other baby foods that claim to be ‘fresh,’ despite having an expiration date a year in the future.”
