Re: Raw milk?

OMG! How much do you and your family go through at those prices? I shouldn't complain about 5 or $6 a gallon huh? If I were in an area to have a goat, I would honestly consider that, but we are not yet.

It figures out to be $5 a gallon by the time we are done, and with a family of 7, I was estimating 5 gallons a week. (total cost will be approx. $100) I have cut us back some, and maybe I could more. I am totally convinced of its benefits, and because my husband has been having stomach/digestion discomfort for awhile, I started buying primadopholis which is pretty expensive. I told him that the raw milk would have that healthy bacteria in it, which would save on the cost of the meds.
Every time I buy milk at the store, I feel guilty that we aren't switching yet.


WOW! Thank you for posting this website. I found a local farmer group (I guess a co-op). It is pricey $7 a gallon, BUT they deliver to your door! Just like the old milk men
Every Friday my milk man will come

Re: Raw milk?

I would love to have the "milk man" come to our door, that is so great for you. I tried to contact a goat farm to ask about goat milk and I will see how the price compares.
