Where do you get your goats milk?

I've just started giving goats milk to my 15 mo DD. I don't want to use cows milk or soy milk b/c of nutritional reasons. I bought meyenberg at the grocery store and was just wondering where everyone else gets theirs...

From my goats LOL

If you are looking, first decide whether you want raw or pasteurized, then find out the laws in your state. If you want to buy direct from a farmer it might be hard to do... if your laws are such that buying direct from the farmer is impossible then you have a choice. Either you and the farmer break the law or you let the gov tell you what you can and cannot feed to your child (-:

Actually, there is a farm nearby. Well, it's about 40 mi away. They sell raw goats milk but it's $6 more per pint than the Meyenberg. Although I think it's totally worth it, we can't really afford that all the time.

I can get it at our organic store I shop at. It is just like whole foods so they might have some there as well

We only do raw and around here that means sourcing from a local farm
