I've been buying raw milk for the last 9-10 months because I love supporting local business, and it makes the best yogurt you can find this side of um, Yogurtville, SC. It also was costing $10 a gallon. Yeesh. And it came in plastic jugs.
I was at the farmer's market a few weeks ago, and one of the vendors had a flyer for raw milk sales that his neighbor was offering. I grabbed one and promptly forgot about it until last week. I called the farm, and was informed that milk came in glass jars and was $7 a gallon. And they don't use hormones on their animals. I headed to the farm on Sunday, and within 2 feet of my Subaru Outback's (hippy mobile) wheels hitting the driveway, I was in love.
The farmhouse is ADORABLE and surrounded by a lovely garden and fruit trees. The barn is quissential "farm barn", and the cow who provides the milk is waiting by the fence with her calf.

|My creepy Angelina Jolie hands are hiding the name of the farm. And I wanted to show off my Finding Nemo bandaid.|
With my new-found treasures safely tucked in (I let Jack ride in the trunk...*), I headed for home knowing that I would be back.
