Now this has really caught my imagination...
Fresh milk from a 24 hour filling machine in Neunkirchen-Seelscheid.
Now I just need to find the place? It can't be more than a couple of km's away? Hmm....

A German dairy farmer has come up with a novel way to drum up new business -- he opened a "milk filling station."
The "Milchtankstelle" near Cologne in the town of Neunkirchen-Seelscheid dispenses the output of 78 cows from a stainless steel vending machine. Customers can either bring their own empty containers or buy milk bottles to fill up."I only had a few customers before I opened the station because they had to come at set milking times, which was a problem," dairy farmer Bruno Stauf told Reuters. "Now they can buy my milk whenever they want."
The milk filling station is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Customers can select the amount of milk they want to purchase at a price of 70 cents per litre. They insert the money, put their container under the nozzle and press a button.
