Does anyone know where I can get low temp vat pasteurized cream (and preferably grassfed/pastured) in Rhode Island? I go to Massachusetts in Framingham for raw milk (and sometimes Foxboro) but  I'd like to find an alternative for when I can't make the long trek out.  Any suggestions?

Monroe Dairy is probably your best bet.  The milk is not organic (however is antibiotic and hormone free) and not 100% grassfed, but the cattle are treated well and allowed to graze frequently, and their pasteurization is described as light or "gourmet".  It tastes good, it's in glass bottles and best of all is delivered.  However there are sources of raw grassfed milk in Rehoboth, Dartmouth and Foxboro, MA, among others.

We were getting raw milk from a farm in Rehoboth, MA until I got preggers and nervous...

Bettancourt Dairy

(508) 252-5464

100 Simmons Street
Rehoboth, MA

 

Really nice farmer. Sells by the half gallon. Cheap.

It's not RI (about a 20 min drive from Providence) but it might be closer than Foxboro. He also sells fresh eggs and there is a farm right down the street (Rosasharn Farm) where we had a veggie share, so I combined the trip every week and it didn't feel as onerous as if I were just getting milk.

I like Rosasharn too.  Her eggs are wonderful.  Paul Bettencourt raises his cows in confinement, though, so I don't feel comfortable buying his milk.   I'll keep looking but thank you so much for the suggestion. :-)
