Amish around here do cans, and the cans get hauled to the plant. My brother used to drive cans, must have given that up about 12 years ago, but I'm pretty sure they got somebody else to drive and they're still going. Sometime inside the last 5-6 years I was talking with somebody (not Amish) I was waiting with at a repair shop, and he was bellyaching about how he'd just gotten word that his milk plant was cutting him off, and wouldn't take his milk anymore. After he left the guy running the shop shook his head and said "yeah, he just never would get with the times. If he switched to a bulk tank he could still sell milk."
