We're Not Crazy

So about a month ago we made the switch from store bought milk to raw organic cows milk.  We get strange looks when people find out that we drink milk basically straight from the cow.  There is no pasteurization or homogenization.  The result is a creamier product chock full of all kinds of nutrients and vitamins that store bought milk just doesn't have.  Many many years ago, they used to use raw milk as a treatment for all kinds of sickness and diseases.  Now it's probably not safe to just get a cow and milk it.  We buy from a local farmer, his milk is grade A certified safe.  His cows are pasture fed, they get no hormones or anitbiotics.  I feel good that we are giving our kids something that is so good for them when everything out there is so bad for you.  We also get our free range eggs from him as well. 

Anyway, if you're interested in the subject at all, check out this blog.  She has alot of good findings and good info on the health benefits of raw organic cows milk. 

I love how she starts her post out, because we usually get the same reaction.  I personally think we need to be more aware of what we are eating and putting into our bodies.  I really would love to make the switch to all organic foods, but it is just so darn expensive.

Do you go to Jersey Girls? Do you get their yogurt too? Have you tried to make your own cheese?
