You go, girl! If we still drank milk (kinda off dairy right now, sorry Raspberry, no offense!) this is the way I would absolutely go! WE are lucky to have a few farms around here who supply our local health food stores with "raw" milk. I remember drinking raw milk at my Granparents farm...taste the difference!

yet another illegal good thing...


why can't entrepreneurs be creative enough to come up with healthy solutions to real problems instead of sequestering what is good and right and freely given by the world?

may the midwives drink raw milk and teach their own children

raw and I need to try again

yes! we have been a raw dairy family for about 3 years now. luckily organic pastures is in california and so are we. I cannot say enough good stuff about the benefits or raw milk, cream, butter and cheese. the only downer is that it does turn quickly. I learned to only buy what we would use within 5-7 days.

I have to laugh when I read that article. DECA the GOVERNMENT organization that regulates commissaries overseas sells RAW milk. HA,HA! It is imported from Germany and other European countries. I have been drinking it all my life, and so have my kids. It does not have to be refrigerated and comes in paper cartons. My kids MUCH prefer the real deal.

The reason they *justify* selling it is because of the high number of foreign national spouses..

Very interesting article! I might repost it. My entire extended family used to run a dairy farm when I was a kid. Fresh milk tastes absolutely nothing like milk that comes from the grocery store! I think it's creepy that grocery store milk has such a long expiration date. We don't have a raw milk source here, but we do drink low temp pasteurized unhomogenized milk that Whole Foods buys from a local farm. It smells and tastes like real milk, thankfully, even though some of the good bacteria has been killed.
