Organic pasture fed milk

Its the best thing ever!!!! Holy moly, I got some for the first time today. Its expensive but it is sooooo worth every penny! Its unbelievable how much better it is than that homogenised rubbish! I am officially converted!!

Anyway, nothing more than that, I just felt I needed to share with someone who would at least understand my excitement!

Re: Organic pasture fed milk

Whered you get it, local markets?

For those of us on a couple of litres a day it's generally a dealbreaker

Re: Organic pasture fed milk

Another question for Jon (or anyone really). I found an online distributor of organic beef/veges and they also do organic raw milk (Unpasterised and non-homogenised milk) but they have a disclaimer saying it's not suitable for drinking. Is this just legal safety or is there some reason they say that?

It's 4.50 a litre, minimum of 10 litre order.

Re: Organic pasture fed milk

Mate, the stuff I got is 5.90 for 2L. I think the disclaimer is because it is unpasteurised which is strictly controlled in Australia. It was only quite recently that unpasteurised cheese was allowed into the country! Personally, I wouldn't drink unpasteurised milk unless I knew EXACTLY where it was coming from! I think as long as its organic and unhomogenised it will be high quality

Re: Organic pasture fed milk

I looked it up - raw milk is illegal in australia. These guys have the disclaimers to say that it's for bathing / cosmetic use so that people don't drink it then tell them off if something happens to them.

I've yet to see anyone in Perth selling just the organic / unhomogenised stuff.

Re: Organic pasture fed milk

yes, fresh raw milk tastes much better. try using it for things other than drinking straight, like cooking and it's even better. yum.

Unpasteurized milk carries many health risks due to pathogen-carrying cows, such as e. coli, salmonella, listeria, etc. Because of this, many countries and some US states make it illegal to purchase for human consumption (AUS/NZ in particular is quite strict in their food regulations). However, you can usually buy it for other uses, such as cosmetic purposes or animal consumption, but in order to do this the sellers/farmers must label their milk as such and warn that it is NOT for consumption, though they know perfectly well what their consumer is actually buying it for in most cases (as in, "you're not going to DRINK this stuff, right? RIGHT? *wink wink* OK then, here's your bath milk...").

Having had e. coli poisoning twice (maybe three times) in my life, I'm steering way clear of the stuff. I'm sure it tastes amazing, but not worth it.
