i have. it is pretty good, nice that it comes in glass. i haven't fully researched the all grass fed-ness of it though. i had once called the farm, but should really follow up.<br>
i get my milk from stonewall dairy (cornwall, ct... i think), it is delivered to a local hfs. i have met the farmers and the cows <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
where are you in CT?

I usually buy Stonewall Dairy milk as well because of the convenience (available at at least 2 local HFSs) but I'm intrigued with what I read on the website you provided. I far prefer the fact that their milk comes in glass bottles. And it looks like their pricing may be a little less ($3 for half gallon=$6/gallon versus $6.99/gallon that I pay for Stonewall Dairy's milk).<br><br>
It does say on their website that the cows' feed is grown elsewhere with fertilizer though, so I would definitely wonder how much grass they're getting. Have you called them and talked to the farm? I keep meaning to do that with Stonewall Dairy but again, convenience won out and so I haven't so far....<br><br>
ETA: Here's more info from the <a href="http://www.grassyhilldairy.com/farm.html" target="_blank">website</a> on their feed program at Grassy Hill Dairy:<br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Since crops are not grown here on the farm, we are a buy feed operation. We purchase only the highest quality feed, which is:<br><br>
* Western alfalfa and grasses<br>
* High quality commodities that are in season, such as corn, soybeans, canola, barley, oats, citrus, and beet<br>
* Our own custom vitamin and mineral mix<br><br>
All feed is mixed using a TMR (Total Mixed Ration) vertical mixer manufactured by NDE. The TMR is around 70% grass and 30% commodities/vitamins. Our cows are fed fresh food every day and have access to free choice feed at all times. The cattle are also able to eat pasture grass when available. Our customized feed recipe is geared towards maintaining our cows' good health and making the milk taste better.</td>

Thanks for the responses! I have checked out their website but I haven't called them or been there. I feel a little clueless about dairy still. I liked the website and I liked that they sell in Bethel, CT, which is near me. I live in Putnam County, NY and there's nothing near me.
