Are there any grocery stores in St. Louis selling unhomogenized organic (and preferably not ultra-pasteurized) milk?

Apparently this is a tall order to fill. Seems like a lot of people would like it...

There is a brand of milk "Farmers" - its Amish, and unhomogenized, VAT pasturized, and organic. It is available at Dierbergs, Whole Foods, and Wild Oats. And its very yummy.

Here is their website. http://www.farmersallnaturalcreamery.com/

Good luck -

I've purchased pasteurized but unhomogenized milk at Dierbergs - the one off Brentwood. It's in weird shaped bottles - slender at the top and larger at the bottom, plastic. They make good maracas when empty and filled with beans.

Thank you!! I'm actually closest to the one off Tesson Ferry, so I'll start there and work my way north. I tend to stay out of Dierbergs because I buy so many things I don't actually need. Thanks so much!

Yep - we buy that Farmer's Creamery milk... we usually get it at Dierbergs, but it's $1-2 cheaper at Whole Foods.

I was in Arnold today so I stopped in that Dierbergs. They seemed to carry only buttermilk and skim milk from that brand, and they had no skim milk in stock. I didn't have time to go anywhere else. I may just have to make a special trip to WFM once a month and buy in bulk, especially if it really is less expensive... supposing unhomogenized milk behaves well after being frozen? I've never actually frozen milk before.

This is a great excuse to go to WFM! DH doesn't know what's coming. I buy Earth Balance at the health food store but I'm betting it's less expensive at WFM as well.
