I would question your doctor. What is her source of information? And if you were to visit the farm, how would you be able to "see" anything unsafe unless you are an expert? To test for bacteria in milk you would need some equipment. You can't tell just by looking at the cow.
I am really happy with them so far. I have been using the milk to make yogurt and kefir and it goes by quickly, I get 2 gallons every week.
And I have to tell you that the only thing I am not happy about is that they only deliver once a week.
I have been also ordering their meat (chicken, ground beef), their eggs (every week, I am hooked), their cream (for making ice-cream) and I can't wait to try more. I can't wait to try their goat milk.
Yes, everything is more $ than Key Food or Fairway. But they deliver to my door! And they are sourcing from farms 2 hours away from NYC. That is amazing. Why buy eggs from who knows where? And after trying their dairy, I have realized that I have been throwing money for organic milk for years without really getting the "wholeness" of the milk.
Also, Udder MIlk are not producers, they only source it and bring it to the customers. They work with many local farmers.
I only get their 6% milk. It is great. Fat from milk is good. At the store, they have nothing remotely close to Udder's.
Our pediatrician gets raw milk also. She gets it from some place called "Paradise Farms" in Nassau, Long Island.
Sometimes people tend to listen to anything doctors say, whether it is within their area of expertise or not. The only way to really tell is to look at the history of raw milk in NYC and if there has been any poisonings ever.
