Hi everyone! I'm very new to TF and I am trying to source things out locally so that I don't have to order online or drive very far to get them. One of the things I'm really interested in is milk. In Canada it is illegal to have raw milk and the best I can come up with is 2% non homogenized milk in my city (I would have to drive 150km away to find 4%/whole milk) What I'm wondering is can I use 2% non homogenized milk to make the cultured products in Nourishing Traditions or do I have to get my hands on 4%? The store that sells it says that they cannot get the whole milk even though the company does offer non-homo whole milk, very mind boggling and I'm going to still try to see if I can get some but just thought I'd ask just in case, thanks!

First, try to find a local farmer who will give/trade/sell to your pets  raw milk.  Ask friends if they know anyone with milk cows or goats (or even sheep).  this time of year all of the animals are having their babies so it shouldnt be too hard to find, at least its not here.  You could even take a drive and stop and ask people who have the animals on their property.

Anyway, I know you can use pasturized, non-h 2% milk to make kefir (with kefir grains).  I dont know about the other cultured products because I have yet to get my hands on NT.  But, I would think that you could, it just might not be as rich, thick or creamy.

There are two very good references on the dangers of homogenized milk and why children should never drink it plus how to treat cardiovascular disease and other degenerative diseases:

1. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/homogenized_milk_and_atherosclerosis

2. Search for: "Homogenized Milk and Atherosclerosis - Healing Heart Disease from A to XO an ebook by Nicholas Sampsidis."

I would try checking out realmilk.com to see if anyone is listed in your area as a source (1st red box on home page - the one with the picture of a cow in it should have a link called "sources").  If no one else is listed, check out the weston price website and call local chapter leaders who might have a lead for you.  In places where it is illegal, most won't list their names, but word of mouth can lead people to what they are looking for.  Don't give up!  I know people in Canada are drinking it despite the regulations, just as we are here (also illegal in Wisconsin).
