this makes good sense from what I understand pasteurization denatures milk protiens (they are very fragile) making it where the body doesn't recognise it as a food and therefore causing allergic reactions (everything from diarrhea to runny nose/allergy type snots to excema sp?)

Re: When does fresh milk expire?

Interesting. So DS is lactose intolerant, but do you think that's just a reaction to the pasteurized milk? Would he maybe be ok with fresh? Fresh milk isn't got to be an option for us, unless we get a cow. It's illegal to buy/sell it here, and I don't know of anyone I could get it from.

When milk is pasturized it takes out the lactase which is what makes lactose digestabl. See if you have a dairy farm in your area that you can buy a share of a caw. Technically if you own it you can drink milk from it.

Here it's illegal to buy/sell "raw milk", but you can be part of a herd share. You pay for a portion of the cow so you own it. Then you pay a boarding fee every month for it.

It's also legal to sell/buy if you buy it as pet milk. It has to be labeled "pet food only. not for human consumption".

Re: When does fresh milk expire?

I might be able to find a dairy farm with in a couple hours drive, if I knew where to look. I know there are none very close, all the cows around here are for beef. We do have 5 acres though, and I want to get a cow in the next year or so. Dh is not for it though, I've been buying non-homogenized organic milk at the store and he hates the way it separates in the fridge

Re: When does fresh milk expire?

Lots of times there are co-ops that share the travel and rotate a milk pick-up once a week.

If you get a cow, you may want other people to buy a share in the milk because I hear that one cow will make more milk then one family could ever use.... at least thats what my mom tells me.

We get 3 gallons a day from our Jersey (and we don't push her super hard either)!

Where should I look to see if I can get in on a milk share or something like that in my area?
