  • Wow, I found RAW milk!!!!

    I thought I had seen it at my farmers market, but then when i started looking couldn't find it again. I think this vendor might've gotten moved. Anyway, in Indiana raw milk is still illegal, so they sell it as "pet food."

    I'm going to make some yogurt with it! (After tasting it first. I bet it's GOOD.)

    They sell raw milk at New Frontiers (which is like a Whole Foods) and I bought it one time...it was DeLICIOUS. But I don't buy it anymore, cuz its like $12.00 for a small bottle. The milk came from our local Cal Poly dairy cows. Maybe i'll just buy it for special occasions...What do they charge for it in Indiana?

          Ouch, that's pricey. I buy mine through a raw milk co-op. It's $7 a gallon and WELL worth it!

                I pay about $4 for a half gallon. It's definitely a luxury and I don't have it very much. I am making plans for my own dairy cow though. Imagine...fresh raw milk, cheese, sour cream, butter... drool

                    Would probably try raw milk again if I find a supplier. As a kid, I hated drinking milk, even though my parents kept pushing it on me. But that was the stuff they bought at the store. When I stayed at my uncle's farm, I would help milk the cows and later drink some of the milk. Totally raw and unprocessed. It never bothered me, and actually tasted good.

                    So the cows played to a draw: +1 for the milk, -1 for me having to go through the pasture to collect the fertilizer they produced. lol

                        Just as a caution, milk is pasteurized for a reason. It kills harmful bacteria. I have yet to see verifiable evidence that 'raw' milk is superior nutritionally to non-raw milk.

                        What you really want is grassfed, organic milk with lots of healthy fat (that's been pasteurized to protect you). That is...if you want to do dairy. I don't use it as a staple. Cream or cheese is good if I'm feeling in the mood....

                          Careful

                          I too love raw milk and all it's benefits. I drank several gallons per week (only $5.00/ gallon here). I did the research and found a great local dairy, never had a problem until I missed my delivery one week and bought a gallon from a different dairy at the farmers market - I got a nasty pathogen from it and was bed ridden for 3 weeks. Never again, I won't even drink it from my original dairy- not worth it. I am fortunate that we have another local dairy that produces non homogenized, full fat milk from grass fed cows that is low heat pasteurized. They have incredible butter and cream too. Raw milk is great but I do believe you are playing Russian Roulette (especially adults with a compromised immune system or kids). Good luck and be careful!

                            Cooking something does not guarantee its safety. Tons of cooked food products spread illness and/or are recalled on a regular basis. Should the govt also save us from all the others things in our lives that could potentially harm us? Sushi banned, all meat and fish sold cooked, cars are far too dangerous, physical contact with other people...

                            A contaminated batch of milk (pasteurized or raw) isn't a sign that we should cook it more, it's a sign that better safety protocol needs to be followed at that farm, or along the distribution chain.

                              What part of Indiana (if you don't mind)?

                              I can find it at my local market, but it's much higher than that!
