    We dont like to drink anything but raw milk! Have been since i was young, and neverhad a broken bone! Health benefits are huge! Pasturized milk is a dead product, all the beneficial bacteria is killed off, natural enzymes that actually help the human body break it down better. Many lactos intolerant people can drink raw milk because of these natural enzymes. Humans have been drinking it raw since the first lactating animal was milked, it has only been the last 50 years that has been changed. Mostly for longer shelf life, and to travel longer distances. In VT we are allowed to sell 40 gallons a week(raw) off the farm. Of course farm cleanliness and serilized containers is key to keeping this product safe! Testing cows, and watching bacteria counts is a must for safe sale. Our 3 year old son wont drink pasturized milk, he says “why did they put water in it” Ulta pasturized is even worse, you cant even make yogurt, sour cream, cottage cheese, etc from it.(not from home) Keep it raw!! God bless!

    Milk still shipped in cans(like pic above) cant be sold as grade A milk, probably will go for butter or cultured cheese.

    Sanitation levels of milk in Amish barns

    (:Well michelle and vt, we’ve got opinions from both sides, great (:

    didn’t mean to knock it VT dairyman, I’m sure you’re right about that, in fact I have not tried it yet myself so I guess I shouldn’t really say—i was just basing it on the fact that there is a lot of cow splatter going on in these barns and some of the milk containers I see the Amish use seem to be fairly open…seems a bit dangerous, but there may be more sanitary ways to milk, and if so I’m sure you’d be the one to know on this blog…

    joe, thanks a lot, that is really great to hear, I do appreciate it. Thanks for reading.
