The Well is Dry
I went to the farm that we purchase our raw milk from Sunday and there was no milk and a sign. “No milk until late September. Please call if you have any questions.” I do have a question. Where is the milk? I guess I should call. But then will that make milk appear? Probably not. I don’t want to be a bother. There’s probably a perfectly good reason. They are good people and this is a major part of their livelihood. There is another farm that is new and says they pasteurize their milk but it is still raw. I disagree. It is not raw. You killed all the good bacteria with the bad and now it’s dead.
Commercial pasteurized homogenized milk effects my digestion in a negative way we will say. The raw milk does not effect me in the same ways. Especially when it’s really fresh. If it’s within a week old it doesn’t effect me at all. Husband has similar issues. As it get’s older it creates some gas issues, but nothing like the commercial milk. So we go through about a half gallon a week. Cereal, coffee, scrambled eggs generally.
I will have to ask around and see if I can find somewhere else to supplement. Nowhere else is licensed by the state on the island for raw milk. I do know some people with cows. Then I will have to find out their milking process and how they handle the milk. How soon they refrigerate. Handling is so important. hmm…
