Plumgood food to carry on home delivery of Purity milk

Plumgood Food has entered into an agreement to acquire Purity Dairies’ home delivery business, continuing a tradition that began 82 years ago with Purity founder Miles Ezell. Plumgood will begin service to Purity’s 2,000 home delivery customers in Middle Tennessee on Tuesday, April 1.

The agreement between Plumgood and Purity was crafted to ensure continued service to the 2,000 home delivery customers Purity now services across Middle Tennessee. Nationwide, dairies have gradually stopped delivering milk to individual homes because of the relative economic inefficiencies associated with this method of distribution. Recognizing these inefficiencies, Purity turned to Plumgood Food, Nashville’s only online grocery store which delivers groceries to thousands of homes throughout Middle Tennessee. The agreement allows Purity home delivery customers to continue receiving milk on their doorsteps, along with any other grocery items they need.

“This agreement is a natural fit for our two companies and a wonderful benefit to our customers,” said Eric Satz, president of Plumgood Food. “Nashvillians have long treasured the option of having Purity milk delivered to their doorstep. It’s a local tradition that Plumgood Food is honored and excited to carry on. Purity customers can now have their Purity milk – and their produce, chicken and paper towels delivered too.”

Customers of both local companies will benefit from the fusion of Purity’s dedication to quality and Plumgood Food’s commitment to making life easier for Middle Tennesseans. While Purity Dairies’ customers will enjoy having more items delivered, Plumgood Food customers will, for the first time, have the option to purchase Purity Dairies’ award-winning milk online.

“Home delivery has long been a symbol of Purity Dairies’ commitment to this community. It is a tradition that started with my grandfather and has meant a lot to this company,” said Mark Ezell, president of Purity Dairies. “How grateful we are to be working with Plumgood Food to ensure that home delivery of Purity milk continues. We know our customers will be delighted with all Plumgood has to offer. Purity home delivery is in great hands.”

Plumgood Food and Purity Dairies are working closely to ensure a smooth transition for Purity home delivery customers. Customers with questions about their service can email or call Plumgood Food at 615-248-4448, ext. 109 or Purity Dairies at 615-244-1970.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
