Raw milk: How much do you pay? - Page 2

post #21 of 57
$6.50 a gallon here. Only a little more than Trader Joe's organic milk. We love our raw milk.

Wow, so cheap in some areas! You're so lucky!
In Canada, where we must go through shares, the one I know of it's about $16/gallon plus your initial share payment. That's for cow's milk.

Ditto in CA- I pay $7.89 for 1/2 gallon of Organic Pastures (=$15.78/gallon).
But since it's just DH and I and we really don't drink much milk (we get most our dairy in butter, cheese and yogurt)...I divide it in 3 containers and freeze each so it lasts us 3 weeks. The raw cream is $11/pint! I get that when I can afford it...otherwise I just get organic/pasturized since I just use a dab in coffee anyways.

Wow, makes me feel spoiled. I pay $3/gal for raw milk which is less than what I pay for crappy store milk. Of course the cow was just dried off so I'm not paying or getting anything right now (so crappy store milk it is). I think it's illegal here so that probably contributes to the low prices

In NOVA, but I travel to PA to get my milk. I pay $4 a gallon. The bottle deposit is $2 for each half-gallon bottle, but when you return the bottles it comes off your next purchase.

In upstate NY I pay $7.20/gallon for biodynamic raw milk. I could probably get it from another farm for cheaper, but this farm is biodynamically run by an anthroposophical foundation and I feel super good about their practices, etc.

Thanks for all the replies! A local mama who runs a raw milk co-op pm'd me, and it looks like I'll be able to get a gallon for about $7-$7.50, including delivery/gas $.

$6 a gallon- LOVE this Jersey milk- awesome quality from a farm in North Florida. We (family of 4) go through around 3gallons a week. We also get cream from our "Amish" coop in PA. In FL it's illegal to sell for human consumption, so all of our milk is labeled "For Pet Consumption Only" per law; lucky pets
