I've searched high and low for local raw, organic, unhomogenized dairy. I cannot seem to find what I want - raw organic cream and butter. DP and I discussed and we want to put an order in, but I haven't even thought about shipping cost.<br><br>
Has anyone ordered with them? Do the products come cold? Are they worth the money? What was shipping cost for you (I'm in OH)? Thanks!

We paid 112 dollars for 4 gallons milk and one pint cream.Shipped to Texas. The milk was still frozen.The box has a styrafoam insert and it had dry ice.It is also shipped second day. Thing is when we order they did not tell me how much shipping would be only that they charge actual shipping costs. We all had a good laugh about how much I had spent on a gallon of milk. I have since found a raw goat milk source locally but if not it would have been back to organic from the store.

Thanks, Missi. I think I will be ordering some butter and cream from then. I've given up milk due to sinus allergies, but raw butter. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">

Do you have a local WPF chapter? The chapterleader should be able to hook you up on the local stuff. I dont remember where you are but there are small time under the radar farmers out there from whom you can get your needs met.<br><br>
I would find a chapterleader. Local is best IMO.

Chanley, I've emailed the local chapter leader 5 times over 8 weeks and still nothing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I think our chapter may be defunct. I'm still looking, I did find fab pastured organic beef, poultry and eggs though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I buy the butter, but I am lucky in that the local farm that supplies us with raw milk orders the butter and cheese in bulk, like a buying club, and therefore I don't have to pay shipping. The butter is okay, better than pasteurized butter, but I think the quality depends on the time year, it was great this spring when the cows were feeding on the new, fast-growing grass. I have had the cream, but the quality didn't compare to the cream I can get locally. Again, I think this is because of the quality of the grass and the time of year.

Selu, where are you exactly in Ohio? (PM me if you're not comfortable posting that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> ) Looking at <a href="http://www.realmilk.com" target="_blank">www.realmilk.com</a>, it looks like it might be hard to find in Ohio. But, if you're near the Pennsylvania border, I know there's a place near Pittsburgh. Also, I'll be an hour north of Pittsburgh close to the Ohio border in August, I could load up at the farm I like and bring you some stuff if you could meet me there.<br><br>
Anyway, check out <a href="http://www.realmilk.com/where4.html" target="_blank">http://www.realmilk.com/where4.html</a> for info on Ohio and Pennsylvania suppliers!

Tara, I'm in Central OH in the capital. I'll check out the website. A friend of mine at another site mentioned a farm an hour of here that may sell on the DL, but don't mention it on their site due to the state laws about selling raw milk. I am going to call them tomorrow and see if they can tell me anything. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
