  • Raw goats milk?

    So I am moving back to South Carolina and will have access to raw goats milk as well as cheese. Anybody out there drinking goat's milk? How much different is it from cow's? I currently have a source of raw cows milk which I love, but my closest source in SC is a goat dairy, who also happens to offer cheese, eggs, and fresh culinary and medicinal herbs which are new perks that I am excited about! I also heard that the goaty flavor is really only pungent in the pasteurized stuff and that raw has a nice smooth and creamy flavor similar to cow's.

    I can't tell a very large difference between raw goat and raw cow milk. There is a difference in taste, yes, but I can't imagine how someone could like one and not like the other. Find one preferable, maybe. I've never tasted a "sourness" in raw goat milk, save for when it's actually souring. I've never tried pasteurized goat milk to compare.

    Congratulations on moving to SC... just moved from there a few months back... miss it a lot! Hope you're near the beach

      I adore goat milk. I have a friend who has two pigmy goats. There is a lot of research saying that goat milk is a lot closer than cow milk to human milk in terms of protein structure and fat molecules so it is much more easily absorbed. Some people who are "intolerant" with cow milk have no problem at all with goat milk. Enjoy.

        I don't think adults should drink milk. I have held this belief since teenagerhood. So I suppose I should have said nothing here.

          this is your opinion, i find it the best place to get my calcium, magnesium, and potassium as well as other essential amino acids. I went off dairy for a while and was deficient in all three. raw dairy is great.

          Paleobird, i have read that as well. So excited to be making the switch, but not exciting about having to drive and hour and a half to get it

            The same dairy where I get my Jersey cow milk also has goat milk. I have tried it and I didnt find it be as sweet as cow milk. I could get used to it, but I prefer cow milk. I have heard that the quality and make up of the pasture they graze has a lot to do with how their milk tastes. Try the goat milk. You might like it. If you just dont like it...it might be worth it to drive the extra distance for cow milk. Im enjoying a big glass of raw cow milk as I write this. Also, i was born in SC...very pretty state.

            Speaking of driving...there are 2 couples who take turns driving to north of Houston to my dairy from Louisana b/c raw milk is illegal in LA. I run into them from time to time when I go on Saturdays.

              There are a few places in Charleston I could go for cow's milk, but the place I'm looking at is a nice family farms similar to the one I go to now. I'm am waiting to hear about prices first though. Charleston is basically the same distance

                We get raw goat milk for our son, he loves it. The dairy where we get our milk used to have a cow that we got raw milk from but there wasn't enough forage for her so they switched to goats. I thought for sure my son would object but no he's fine with goat milk and he has a very developed pallet.

                  I haven't tried raw cow's milk but I have tried raw goats milk and for me the difference in taste between normal cows milk and raw goats milk is huge! I've never been a fan of milk in general but I go through 2 litres of goats milk in 2 days, the taste is just so much fuller than watery tasting cows milk. I'd definitely try it if i were you

                    so I may be staying with cows milk after all. the dairy i contacted is going into breeding season and their milk supply will be diminished. they are currently not taking any new customers. if im not mistaken one of the stores in Charleston does carry goats milk, but it will all depend on price. i think the store also has raw butter!

                      Charleston is where I used to live... you can get raw milk (cow or goat) from the Farmer's market on saturday mornings in Marion Square. They shut the market down in the winter though.
                      In West Ashley, you can go to the Glass Onion and they have raw cow milk and pastured eggs sometimes (supply is not consistent), or you can go to Geer's barber shop and they have raw cow's milk and can order raw cream. They have designated delivery days and you can sign up to ensure your supply. They used to get raw butter but don't anymore. I don't know of any store that carried raw goat milk or raw butter. I got raw goat milk from either the Farmer's market or a very nice farmer on John's Island... don't remember his name though.
                      Man I do miss charleston... I used to play music for the farmer's markets every so often. Ha! Enough of memory lane.

                        I had raw goat milk years ago, and I remember it being quite good. It's not the greatest for making yogurt, though; my husband tried this recently and is was very thin. I'm in the same boat as SBHikes on the idea of drinking it as an adult, but I understand why people are into it.

                        If you're going to drink milk, in my opinion this is a great one to go with, because goat and sheep milk contains A2 casein, which is supposedly less allergenic than A1.

                        Here's a cool article on the A1 vs. A2 casein protein, in case you're interested:

                          Goats 'and sheeps' dairy are awesome in my experience. Especially for building muscle.

                            Nutritionally, raw goat's milk seems to be easier for many people to tollerate, even if they have dairy sensetivities. The same for the cheese and really, all other forms of goat-derived dairy products. So, advantage to that!

                            That seems to suggest that it may be "safer" to consume for most people, even those that tollerate dairy (such as myself) very well. I would suggest that you give it a try and see what you think of it. Some people say goat's milk is slightly more sour in flavor, but overall, it's not too much different.
                            "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

                              Thanks man, ive found these guys on realmilk.com and will start calling around. the farmer on johns island is who i originally spoke to. will def have to check out the farmers market as well and i happen to be a musician myself. quick question about building muscle, how much milk would you consume for trying to bulk up? Right now around a quart a day has been well for me but from the looks of your picture you know a thing or 2 about that area. I try to keep my carbs around 60-80 grams and my carb of choice is raw milk. I keep my protien around 150gram a day roughly.
                              How long did it take you to get to where you are now?
                              thanks for al the info guys!
