Thank you to our kind farmer friends who left this raw milk for us...

  2. Wow, real raw milk in a beautiful container! I noticed how you wrote that the farmer left it for you and I'm wondering if your laws are as unfriendly to local small dairy farms as they are here in VA.
    Three years ago a friend of mine who owns a working farm had a dispute with the state of VA about his raw milk and he's been advocating for Food Freedom ever since. As far as I know, raw milk can be given away but not bartered, traded or sold in VA. I believe there are some states that allow it to be sold as long as the label states that it hasn't been pasteurized.

  3. Let me tell you about Listeria.... Stay away from raw milk if you are pregnant, old, HIV, on arthritis medicine or immunosuppressed in any way. Its nothing to take lightly.

    1. Good point R. but Listeria is found in all sorts of processed foods- including pasteurized milk!

  5. I recently had to (sorrowfully!) give up my raw milk habit of many years' standing when I went all-in for Ketogenic. Unfortunately, cow's milk is full of milk sugar and growth hormones designed to make a baby cow grow very big, very fast. If YOU don't want to grow very big, very fast, (Muffy can get away with it!) be careful. ;-)

  6. Actually, it seems like all the big food-poisoning scares lately have been attributed to fresh produce, nothing from the animal kingdom. Lettuce has killed more folks than bacon or milk, just sayin'!

  7. We have the same lamp in a different shape. My grandmother got it at B. Altman's just prior to WWII.
