Now she stood mesmerized in the wee hours as 180 cups of non-dairy almond "ice cream" whizzed past her every single minute.

It appears as though a lunatic toddler is planning a bender in my kitchen. My eight-foot-long cherrywood island is a fracas of milk—containers and cartons and glass jugs and tins of powder illustrated with mammals that aren’t cows. Behind them is a jumble of brightly printed Tetra Paks filled with extrusions of grains and nuts and tubers and seeds.A single container of cow’s milk stands, somewhat awkwardly, alone. Why? Because cow’s-milk consumption in this country has plummeted—7 percent in...
