Fresh Milk!

It was one of those too-hot summer days not long ago when I put the cereal into the refrigerator and the organic milk into the cupboard.  The next day we were surprised to find that the milk hadn’t spoiled.  

Ultra-pasteurized, huh?  I looked it up and was shocked to find what a stretch it is to even call it milk! It is processed to the point where it does not need to be refrigerated. This enables it to travel great distances. (Cheap “milk” from China, anyone?)
 
Next, some more research and another surprise: Goat milk is more digestible than cow milk because the fat molecules are one-fifth the size!
 
Fortunately, we in this valley DO have access to a direct source of raw goat milk from one of the last remaining small farms.  I’ve been going there for a couple months, and am impressed.

Would any of you like to join me in a regular milk run?  We could alternate trips and delivery. Kefir and homemade goat cheese are also available.
